Superstition in Leafs Nation


Okay. My story.

I understand that Toronto Maple Leafs fans (Leafs Nation) felt their boys in blue had their playoff chances jinxed by a certain Canadian music superstar. Drake, the proud Canadian and Torontonian that he is, would show up at (Toronto's home rink) sporting his Leafs jersey to cheer-on his team. That already jinxed team.

Drake's in the stands; the Buds lose.

Fans asked him politely: Please do not show up. "That kills our chances of beating the Bruins."

Superstition. I disagree on that one. The Leafs' chances of beating the Boston Bruins, or any team, at home in the playoffs is jinxed when the Leafs show up sporting Toronto Maple Leafs jerseys.
