One way to prove that Toronto fans are more passionate is how they don't just boo their team in the midst of a season where the Leafs were sitting in 13th place, they throw waffles at them.
Yes, that's correct. Waffles.
A number of upset fans threw waffles (and an Eggo box) onto the ice last December in a fit of frustration during a season that seemed to be heading nowhere.
I believe Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger put it best: "Who brings waffles to a hockey game?"
Crazy awesome Leafs fans, that's who!
The best part about the waffle toss is that the Leafs had posted a 2-5-1 record in December including the 4-1 loss to the Flyers when the waffles were launched onto the ice, and then the team started to turn things around.
Toronto won their next two games and, over the course of the season, fought for a playoff spot until the very end.
Maybe the fans knew that the team just needed a boost, because they do say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day...
