It's like people are hoping for bill 101 to go away so Montreal can come back.
Sure Hockey is and always will be #1, but I feel I should let you know some things about the Toronto Blue Jays.

1977 took only 50 games to set an expansion team attendance record.
1991 Became first MLB teams to have over 4 million in attendance.
A feat they repeated in 1992 and 1993.
The 4,057,947 attendance of 1993, was an AL until 2005. (NYY)

Other teams:

The ACC has been full for Raptors through all the years of garbage.

TFC has also enjoyed a decent following that if they were any good at all would have mushroomed greatly.
