Hey Winnipeg

Congrats on the second reincarnation of the Winnipeg Jets. While I have had doubts about the finances of the team in the future, I'm very happy for you guys. I will be rooting for you (except for when they play the leafs!) I hope you have the same early to mid 90s type jerseys because that's the Jets I remember from my childhood (I really dislike the dale hawerchuk jerseys).

Again, congrats and good luck in the draft.

TNSE may have given into the masses on the name, but I'm certain they will completely change the logo and colours.

And I'm happy about that.

No compliment from a Torontonian is complete without a backhanded remark.

The predatory behaviour by some peg posters against "non traditional" sports markets kind of rubbed me the wrong way. A lot of them gave into the whole media "US vs Canada" crap.

Look at the bright side, at least they voted for us to return to the league this past Tuesday!

Unlike 1979, when they voted against us!

To be fair, they are better than all of us. I'm just lucky they occasionally grace us with their presence.

What's with the "let's all hate Toronto" stuff? It wasn't just people from Toronto that raised the question of the team's financial viability in the future.

Oh well. Toronto and the Leafs are the most hated city and hockey team in Canada. People are still laughing at us when we had to call in the army to cleanup the snow back in '99. You kind of get used to it over time. Although a lot of hate towards Winnipeg came from other places too such as Alberta, if I remember correctly.

This, I remember him talking **** about Winnipeg. Remember that thread in the National Hockey League Talk section, where it was pretty much dedicated to bashing everything Winnipeg? He was going on and on about how much of a ****hole our city was and such. I will always remember that from him and certain other people.

And you really think it was Winnipeggers who were leading that charge against no-traditional markets??

Time to look in your own backyard.

Time to wait for the movie offers now.

Anyway, that is a great video. I am hoping that they create something similar, but with more old clips and better music for the home opener.

Thankfully, the richest man in Canada owns the team... so his comment is complete crap.
