We’ve all heard it. The sound of one team sucking. Our team. The Leafs. It usually starts this time of year. And while everything seems rosy for Leafs fans, just wait. The panic will soon set in.
Building in intensity with each defeat until, sometime after the All-Star break, the sound explodes — an internalized shriek like the noise a star might make if you ripped its heart out.
It’s a ritual for us.
