Bandwagon Fans

I was talking to my buddy Ian about the Red Sox and how cheering for them is just different now that the entire world thinks the Sox are champions instead of bums, and I got to wondering about bandwagon fans.

As Leafs fans on April 10th, 2008 I think it's pretty safe to say that we're the die hards. In ten years or so, what happens if the Leafs win the cup? Ignoring bandwagon fans, and the people claiming that you and I haven't ever watched a Leafs game before, I think the first thing that happens is the Ottawa Senators fold.

Nah, I think before that would be a rash of ritualized Japanese suicides in the Senators organization

Ritual suicide? I don't think they have the guts. The Senators, like their fans, would pull out their Maple Leafs jerseys and continue like it was 1993.

when the leafs win the cup, i'm not going to give a rats ass what the hell else is going on around me, even if the senators fold (although there would be a huge party to celebrate that down the road)...

it would be like heaven on earth.

and i love the tag: COME ON GLORY

indeed, bro, indeed.

I vow to take any Leaf bandwagoners by the hair and chuck em onto the highway.

Maybe some company should make reversible jerseys, like these (self pimping ahead):
