I’m usually a fan of reaction shots from big public viewings of playoff or World Cup games. Seeing so much unbridled joy in a group of strangers makes me believe in a better world or that this stupidity has a purpose.
Unless they are Toronto Maple Leafs fansand then I live for it:
Make no mistake, these would have been the most insufferable people alive had the Leafs not managed to crush a third period lead and eliminate the Lightning instead of losing 4-3 in overtime. They would never have heard the end of it as they never stopped believing.
And these will be the same people who, as soon as the Brayden Point stuff hit the net, bemoaned all the gods of organized religion and went home to pierce their own nipples to protest how bad the Leafs are and basically cursed how they’re doing when they’re actually just a pretty good team in a division with five pretty good teams and sometimes the dice just don’t roll. If they can’t rub their glory in your face and scream that they’re the one true hockey town, all these fuckers will rub their misery in your face to try to justify their loudness equally.
look at these faces You know what’s coming. They are already preparing their YouTube videos in their basement with jars of their own piss in the background. And though they’ll never say it, they know it’s their fault. Their constant air raid siren of a reaction for six months when Auston Matthews stubs a toe makes every Maple Leaf absolutely miserable and walking on eggshells. The Bolts will either win Game 7 in Toronto 12-0 or score five goals in the last minute of regulation to win 5-4. Matthews is leaving in two years to get off this crap.
You can snort this shot and really kiss the sky.
