Hidden Maple Leaf messaging in Goldmember

I don't know if anyone else noticed this, but I was watching Goldmember the other day, and noticed a few things. When Dr.Evil is captured, and after he's sentenced to that prison, there's a news update and it says on their ticker-"Toronto voted best city in the world. Maple Leafs win Stanley Cup". Also, in the Hard Knock Life part, Mini-Me is wearing a Leafs jersey, though he has that clock on a chain so you can't tell.

It makes sense, though, as Mike Myers is from Toronto and is a huge Maple Leafs fan.

LOL! Maple Leafs winning the Stanley Cup!

Mike Myers sure has a crazy sense of humour.

I noticed that.

What a philanthropist Myers is for the Leafs fans, knowing they cant win a Cup, so fantasy in film is the least he can provide.

Yeah, Myers is a big Leaf fan.

The Sabres won the Cup in thanks to Jim Carrey's 'godly' powers in Bruce Almighty as well.

I don't understand why the leafs are hated that much.... I mean, I don't like them but when it comes down to which team everyone hates the more, the leafs are the biggest winners. There's no real reason beind that. Well, I guess they're an easy choice. By the way Toronto (the city) sucks. But the leafs are alright..... Bah anyways.

You must associate with annoying women. I have neither of those, but bought a piece of native crystalline carbon recently if you get my longwinded drift.

When I saw that in the theatre I cheered. Unfortunately, despite it being a GTA theatre, no-one else had enough life/humour in them to make a sound. How dissapointing.

As for Hollywood Leaf references, www.baystreetbullies.com has pictures of a few.

Yeah, the Leafs will never win the cup!!!!!!!!....



Seriously though, your all tools... Im serious, if the Leafs pick up a Dman who can log 25 minutes a night, keep your heads up kids, Toronto's rolling to the Stanley Cup.

True, but come the deadline... with the apparent CBA strike looming, there will be quite a few veteran 25 minute defensemen available.

I think there may be 20 minute a night guys, or players that play 25 minutes now, because they're on a weaker team (Zhitnik).

They won't come cheaply, because a number of teams will be looking for the same thing. The more teams interested, the higher the price.

I don't know if you're from T.O., but if you aren't, go listen to the Fan 590 (www.fan590.com) and listen to their call in shows. It will reveal everything. A 'typical caller' has a distorted sense of hockey reality, over valuing each and every Leaf player.

Yeah, there's a suite in the Corel Center in Ottawa that's called "Mike's Canada Corner" and every game, a message from Mike Myers comes up on the scoreboard welcoming the people in Mike's Canada Corner.

Puh-leeze ya Leafs fan, why do you have a box at the CC in your name? Everyone knows what a Leafs fan you are.

Maybe they should replace him with Tom Green or Matthew Perry.

Hehe, I actually thought about that when I saw that greeting. I bet when the camera cut out after filing that clip, he said something funny and accurate like, "ugh, I can't believe I'm being forced to market to these idiot Sens fans. Where has my career gone?"
