Following the bombings at the Boston Marathon last month—in which three people died and over 200 were injured—the people of Boston embraced the slogan “Boston Strong” as a rallying cry of sorts for a broken, battered, yet fiercely determined and resilient city. Needless to say the terrorist attack on the city of Boston is still fresh in people’s minds, so you can imagine how well received this Toronto Maple Leafs fan was with this “Toronto Stronger” sign he proudly displayed in Maple Leaf Square during Game 3 of the Leafs-Bruins playoff series…
It takes a certain level of douchebaggery to think this would be a good idea, even if it was done in the spirit of fun and gamesmanship. A good chunk of hockey fans are complete meatheads—this guy and the Bruins fan who sucker punched a Leafs fan into unconsciousness in Boston on Saturday are prime examples—but I doubt even the most die hard of hockey fans would condone this brazen act of stupidity.
The Bruins defeated the Leafs by a score of 5-2 to take a 2-1 series lead.
