You Know You're a Leafs Fan When...

AndrewCorrespondent INovember 21, 2008

I found the original article "You Know You're a Hockey Fan When..." by Daniel Arouchian quite interesting and decided to make one too myself, but with the Andrew Echevarria touch.

On a side note, this is not plagiarism as I have taken the liberty to ask Daniel Arouchian for permission to use his idea for this article. So let's get this started!

  • You can spell Alexei Ponikarovsky and Carlo Colaiacovo backwards
  • 13 is your lucky number and the No. 7 (1967) makes you cringe
  • Your favourite T.V. channel is Leafs TV
  • You end up on a horse ranch because you thought it was a Ponikarovski fan club
  • You can't remember the year Canada became a country, but you can remember the year the St. Pats became the Maple Leafs
  • You pick up chicks at Don Cherry's Sports Bar and Grill
  • Your best pickup line is "Hey babe, I hope you're a Raycroft because I can see myself scoring on you from every angle on every shot"
  • You learn small talk from Darcy Tucker
  • You only write about the Leafs on Bleacher Report
  • You "Hab Punch" your friends
  • You refuse to learn to speak French because you don't want to be mistaken for a Habs fan
  • You buy your back to school stuff from "Legends" (1304 Harmony Road N in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. 905 723 8993. Mention "Tyler sent me" for a 10% discount)
  • You know who Poni, CuJo, The Eagle, and Nik The Stick are
  • You state you prefer to get paid in Leaf tickets than cash on your job resumes
  • The only Stanley Cup footage you have to watch is in black and white
  • You vote for Andrew in the NHL Monthly Awards: November—Subliminal Message
