Strange bunch of oddballs on the Leafs board. They're working themselves up into a frenzy of Hab-hate over there, re-cooking stale cliches and silly insults, trying to convince themselves they belong in a real playoff rivalry. Not saying the Leafs aren't a good team, but the their fans... hilarious. The reality is that whatever history we have with the team is too old to be worth anything. Rivalry? I'm one of the older guys here and I have no memory of the last time we met in the playoffs. It's easier for me to work up an emotion over Watergate than the Leafs/Habs rivalry. So what's with the faux-hate from their fans? Can they possibly be that jealous of our team, so desperate to join the playoff vibe, so delusional to think that being a fan means being obnoxious?

Really, the only reason I want to beat the Leafs is to muzzle the mooing sounds coming from some of these yokels. It's the fake bravado of a fourteen-year-old who's just had his first beer.

I enjoy sparring with Bruins fans. I have no interest in babysitting Leaf fans.
