The Toronto Maple Leafs can't stop and simply won't stop listening to Miley Cyrus after victories.
Seeing as how Cyrus continues to dominate this year, we will assume you know exactly which song we are referring to.
However, since we can't get the ditty out of our own heads now, we pass it on to you:
McGran received word from the players on why they chose such a sugary pop song for the jubilation taking place in the locker room after wins.
Apparently, there is no shortage of guys taking umbrage with the selection. Joffrey Lupul reportedly stated, "It’s certainly not my choice." Then he remembered what truly matters in life: "Whatever. As long as we keep winning, I’ll deal with it."
According to Michael Traikos of the National Post, Carl Gunnarsson said, "I hate that song."
As it turns out, the song was suggested by Tyler Bozak, who, according to McGran, completely owned it on Twitter.
Here is how it all went down on the social media site:
Traikos also managed to get a far more useful quote from Bozak, who gives us a glimpse into the Maple Leafs' musical tastes.
According to Bozak, about 75 percent of the team is "on board" with the song selection. His thought is that you are never going to please everyone. And really, he should have added the obvious notion that haters are very much going to hate.
As a reminder, Cincinnati Bengals fans were peeved when the team decided to play Katy Perry's "Roar" at random points during the first home game of the season. As ESPN reports, the outrage caused the team to scale back the use of the song at games.
Boy, when did the sports world devolve into a bunch of hipsters?
In all seriousness, we proudly applaud Bozak.
Now, we don't offer praise for choosing the song, which is horrible, but we laud him because he is confident enough to stick out his chest and declare to all that he loves the song and is going to celebrate along with it.
Who am I to begrudge him his Miley? I sit here nerding out to reruns of Dr. Who and random marathon sessions of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
We all have our things. It just so happens that Bozak's thing comes every time his team gets another win, which has been fairly frequent early in the season.
Not sure how you can mock that.
