It was a rainy day in pizzaville....
 
Why did you become a leaf fan? Who is your all time favorite player? Explain.

I honestly was a Oilers fan when I was a kid (im 28 now) I was a fan of the Great one, but really loved Mark Messier. My all time favorite (even more then you Stevie Y) And when I moved to a new school and started grade 1, All the kids were huge leaf fans, and me wanting to fit in, asked for a brand new Maple Leaf STARTER PULL OVER JACKET,

We have been happiley involved ever since.

It was really this.

Raging Bull 08-23-2012 07:25 PM

Born into it. Dad was a Leafs fan so that's who I cheered for.

Favourite player, Steve Thomas.

Crispy Crust 08-23-2012 07:35 PM

The local team.

Terrence 08-23-2012 07:37 PM

My father was a fan so I cheered for them. It stuck.

dougieg93 08-23-2012 07:40 PM

My first leaf game was a 93 playoff game and I wasn't really a hockey fan before that. The experience catapulted me to a die hard and my favourite player is and was Dougie Gilmour.

Hurt 08-23-2012 07:40 PM

Grew up cheering for the Leafs. Stayed with them when I was old enough to make my own decision.

TMLife 08-23-2012 07:53 PM

I was an oilers fan as a child and cujo was my favorite player and when he went to Toronto I went with him. He was also my favorite leaf

First gift I received in life was a hand made Maple Leaf jumper type outfit made by a Dutch farmer. That's where it started.

Johnny Bower is my favourite player followed closely by Borje Salming.

King William 08-23-2012 08:08 PM

Immigrated to Canada in 1991 at the age of 5. Die hard fan since 1993-94 (age 7).

I suppose the long playoff run turned me into a fan.

Ironic.

I arrived from Finland in Toronto in 1999 with my family when I just turned four years old. My dad became a big hockey fan when he started seeing Leafs games on TV and I followed along. There isn't no turning back now. Will take the blue and white to my grave!

KuleminFan41 08-23-2012 08:26 PM

Came to Canada in 92, started watching hockey as a kid in around 96 and it was the local team loved the Leafs...Grew up at school virtually as the only Leafs fan which makes no sense

FlareKnight 08-23-2012 08:26 PM

Just grew up with it in the house so just naturally became one.

Sundin favorite player without a doubt.

FriendlyGiant 08-23-2012 08:34 PM

I grew up in Winnipeg, so I was a Jets fan until I moved to Ontario 21 years ago. Since the Leafs were the local team, I started cheering for the Leafs (unless they were playing the Jets). Gradually my allegiances changed and I am now a Leafs fan (although I still wish the Jets much success now that they're back).

Favorite Leaf probably either Tie Domi or CuJo or Sundin

Pretty much, come from a family that isn't into sports but cricket from my mom's side but when I watched hockey and then the leafs just stuck no matter what. Born a leaf fan and I'll die a leaf fan.


Been with this team from the get go and will be till I die !
