Afternoon Line

You really have to live in this city to feel what it's like right now. Leaf fans lived through a late-season collapse in 2011-12, then had the Game 7 nightmare last spring. The level of angst on radio talk shows and social media platforms is through the roof. 

-Pierre LeBrun on the state of the Toronto Maple Leafs.  More from LeBrun at ESPN.

I wonder where the line is drawn between being a passionate fan of your team and living vicariously through them.

Maybe it’s not too late to introduce the GTA to the concept of “managed expectations”.  As a Cubs fan, I’m rather fluent and volunteer for duty.

Blammo, that made me chuckle, but that’s probably the tipping point.
