You never hear the end of it anytime Toronto wins anything. But I understand theres whole generations that wouldn't necessarily know this.

ps Is it just me or do quotes like "RR once again coming up huge in a playoff game" bother anybody else? Its not like this guy is any particularly noted great playoff performer. He's been an also ran for several seasons. I have to dial up my longterm memory to ascertain what "again" is referring to.
The Argos are behind the Jays, Raptors, and even the Marlies in terms of popularity... I mean, what was their attendance in our playoff game with them? 25k? They had higher attendance for regular season games!
