With Hockey season just a few weeks away (at the time this article is being written), Leafs fans are ready to lace up their skates and hit the ice (figuratively). Whether flipping on the TV, streaming on a smart device or experiencing a live game, fans strive to show support and admiration for the Leafs in any way possible, especially during the playoffs. But, what about the regular season?
In a way, showing one’s support during the relative lack lustre of the preseason is a sign of true loyalty and love for your team. After all, being ever-present and tuning in through thick and thin is what support is all about.
Here are some ways to show that the Leafs are YOUR Leafs all season long
Wear That Jersey Year Round
What better way to show support than to don the blue and white? Taking it a step further, keep that bad boy on throughout the preseason and into the finals. Showing support need not stop, even if the Leafs fall short and fail to make it to the finals (fingers crossed as this is being written as not to jinx). Wearing that jersey with pride everywhere you happen to venture (take it off when you shower, of course).
Playoffs Are Fun, But…
There’s nothing better than to watch Toronto head into the playoffs; however, to show true devotion, keep your watching throughout the entire season. Tuning in during the regular season, only to see how the Leafs are progressing, isn’t enough to show full-on support. Be a true fan and stay tuned from the beginning to end.
Adopt That “Finals” Enthusiasm For The Entire Season
Enthusiasm is not only infectious but a sure fire way to show the world that this is what you do to support the Leafs, you show everyone how you feel about the blue and white titans of the ice. An enthusiastic fan is a devoted fan, and keeping that level of excitement throughout the entire season shows dedication that you are always there for your team.
Show Up To Those Games
There is nothing wrong with supporting the Leafs from the comfort of your own home. However, being present and in the moment is as supportive as one can get. Nothing beat the sounds, smells and overall atmosphere of experiencing a game within the hallowed Scotiabank Arena. Showing up for the game is a statement of loyalty, support and comradery.
Season Tickets. Enough Said
This one is for those of us that have a little extra disposable income, of course. But, if you happen to be one of the lucky Leafs fans that can put aside an extra $200, then the proof of you’re support for the blue and white knows no bounds. With the purchase of season tickets, one chooses to be present through thick and thin.
