Taking on an evil giant
As you know, I have a ton of respect for the folks at PensionPlanPuppets (even though I am not, for the last time, stalking any of them). But every once in a while you have to get into it with a Leafs fan. Cause you do.
who posted this: Barlkosphere: Is there anything specific I should tell Montreal during my time on Team 990? Besides the obvious, that they suck…
So mlse, also known as PPP, tweeted this: Yes, tell them that last night some goons in front of us started singing “ole” during tied game. So we sang it after win. And this: Also, tell them to enjoy their four extra games this year.
I couldn’t resist: Enjoy the playo- I mean the dra- I mean golf
mlse: First Round Exit (clap, clap, clapclapclap) First Round Exit (clap, clap, clapclapclap)
theactivestick: Also I forgot. Enjoy the Blue J- ah fuck it, Let’s Go Golfing (clap, clap, clapclapclap)
mlse: Oh yeah, the Jays stink but I am sure the Exp…oh yeah.
Space Weed chimes in: What, me and mlse can’t hear you with our Nutrilite Canadian Championship over our ears [For the 100 per cent of you that just wondered what the hell that was, it's a competition between the Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver FCs to decide who's going to represent Canada at the CONCACAF Champions League, in other words, which team is going to lose at the CONCACAF Champions league.]
mlse: Boom. Roasted.
theactivestick: Julie I think these Leafies are hitting on us.
Meanwhile, torontomike is making a pretty good appearance on the Team990 (you’ll find the audio here) and is being asked what Leafs fans do when their team is eliminated from the playoffs before they even start every year,
theactivestick: Watched the Leafs get eliminated through a game they weren’t even in right after?
mlse: So you guys do have some memory of being worse than the Leafs for the majority of the last 15 years.
theactivestick: Honest answer? Of course. You guys have the All-Heart video, we have the Saku comes back video. And also the 24 cups.
mlse: Sure, that last one was almost 20 years ago. Kids born that year were old enough to drive cars you guys burned last year
theactivestick: You can’t say we don’t know how to throw a party around here.
By this time MetricJulie has challenged TorontoMike to a bet on the air because he thinks he has seen the future, and that the Habs are going to be swept cleanly out of the playoffs in the first round. TorontoMike accepts, and if you think of any ideas for terms for their bet, please direct them Julie’s way.
theactivestick: If metricjulie is willing to bet against torontomike I’d be willing to man up and bet mlse
mlse doesn’t respond for a while…
metricjulie: When we win our bet against torontomike and mlse, drinks are on me.
Kibbles chimes in with the line of the night: Loser has to be a leaf fan
theactivestick: torontomike can you please get mlse to grow a pair and accept my bet? kthx
mlse: HAHAHA terms?
theactivestick: Well you said we’ll only enjoy four games, you sticking with that?
mlse: Sure, I’ll stick to my convictions.
theactivestick: Sounds good. I’ll think of something sufficiently embarrassing and get back to you in a bit.
theactivestick: I’m thinking this will involve Max Pacioretty in some capacity…
So yeah, I ain’t scared of no PPP or the predictions of a couple of Leafs fans with possibly hundreds of times the readers I have… I have faith in my Habs, and I’m not actually sure what the terms of the bet are going to be yet, but MaxPac is a good place to start, I think. His sweater number is every Leafs fan’s favourite.
UPDATE: You will find the terms we decided on somewhere in this post.
