My favorite sports myth is that the Toronto Maple Leafs are a professional hockey team. My second favorite sports myth is that the Toronto Maple Leafs have a large legitimate fan base, let alone are the most popular team in Canada. I could spend hours detailing the psychology of being a Leafs "fan". Social facilitation is but the tip of the iceburg.

Yes season is over and the controversy is put to rest. By the Way, "Patriots cheated": They were caught before they could use it, so the game in question they never actually gained any benefit so the win was real.

Yes! GO GIANTS! I have been vindicated --- hey Wayne, yes, they invented television well before then, but the Dolphins didn't use it to cheat. Now the BIGGEST sports myth of all times is that this Pats team was going to have a perfect year. Thank you Giants, you beat them despite all those spy cameras undoubtedly planted every where in the arena.

I'm all for trash talk, Guy, but I'm also for mutual respect; I don't make it personal. "Before 1992" means this: the NHL awarded Bruce Firestone and the City of Ottawa an expansion franchise on December 6, 1990. That's when the Sens Army was born, and I consider myself an original. I'm 39, btw.

Let's not monopolize the string anymore. Do you have a favourite sports myth, Guy?

Bon fin de semaine.

deap, I got you rattled. But let me say that just about all of my comments are of tongue & cheek in nature. You know,locker room talk. No offence intended but my oh my you're a sensitive lad deap. P.S. You've been a Senators fan "since even before 92"-----Now lets see,their first season was the 92-93 campaign. Or are you talking about the original Senators of the twenties era. How old are you anyway deap. Guy from Ottawa.

Guy, my comment yesterday was sarcasm. Yours in response was harsh, crude and unnecessary.

Just out of curiosity: did anybody else on this string not 'get' the sarcasm?

Guy: I'm an original Sens Fan, since even before '92. I also notice that at least I made a comment on the subject of this string, whereas you have not.

Have a great weekend, all.

Hey deap,what kind of mindless rubbish was that? Unfortunately for you, I'd say your sports knowledge is a myth.
Guy from Ottawa, 2008-01-31 17:14:36

thanks pete

I broke out into a cold sweat.

The typo was typing wayne instead of jimmy.
wayne, 2008-01-31 16:03:54

... and then's there's always that old Leafs Nation standby: "We'll contend next year." Yup. Sure you will. Mm-hmm.
deap, 2008-01-31 15:45:25

Wayne, my deepest appologies. I'm not sure which typo as I have allot. I certainly did not confuse you with that American Idiot. Again my appologies, regret any inconvenience I may have causes. However that being said, Norbit may be Jimmy in drag.
