It is astounding to me how emotional people can remain AFTER a sporting event is over. I may be pissed that my team lost, but to go on and on about it is incredibly tiresome. Witness the current playoff series between the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs (yes...Leafs...not Leaves...their team name is grammatically incorrect). While I will rant on about the cheapshot artists on the Leafs during a game, and will discuss it afterwords, I don't take a hissy-fit because Leaf fans don't acknowledge the skill that are the Senators players.

For anyone who understands hockey, it is painfully obvious that the Leafs have been incredibly outplayed throughout the series. However, they have won three of the hockey games. Their goaltending has been incredible. Except for that, they have been terrible. But stating this obvious fact gets hoots of derision from the Leaf faithful. Typical. I find that most Leaf fans have no clue about the GAME of hockey, and only choose to see what they want.
