I managed to carry the torch. I have gotten sh*t my entire life down here in Virginia, but I'll never give up my pride. I think it's more fun to be living in enemy territory.
Definitely is! I lived in Toronto for a few years when I was young and I loved the rivalry I had with my friends. I still hate the Leafs more than any other team to this day!
Moved back to Boston in my teens and I've lived here ever since. Been a diehard Pats/Bruins/Celts fan since I could pick up a football. I used to enjoy the Sox games but I've pretty much lost interest in baseball the past few years, its just too boring.
By the way, I'm looking forward to Nov 2 when the Hokies come to Chestnut Hill! Usually a great game between those two teams. Go Eagles!
Nice! I'm a very competitive guy and my friends love to get me worked up so they always try to take cheap shots at the Pats...I quickly remind them that they are Skins fans and then suddenly, the room goes silent.
As a B's fan, I could never manage to hate the Leafs. I like their history, franchise, etc. so I could never really hate them. Plus, in my lifetime, they've sucked. It would probably be different for me if I lived in Toronto like you. I do, however, despise the Habs. Ugh. They are the Jets (New York) fans of Hockey.
Funny that you bring up the BC/Tech game. Obviously, being from Virginia, everybody in my area LOVES the Hokies, no matter if they are alumni or not. It's like Penn State. It's a damn cult. Growing up, I was always a BC fan so I never liked Tech football. The older I got and the more I realized I wanted to go to Tech, the football team grew on me and I am now of course a diehard. When we don't play BC, I still root for them, though. Have a blast at the game! I'll be sure to send you a DM once my Hokies whoop up on ya ;)
