City of Ottawa sues Maple Leafs for embarrassing collapse of COVID PSA

The city of Ottawa perfectly trolled the Toronto Maple Leafs for their latest post-season failure.

When the NHL expanded beyond the original six in 1967, the Toronto Maple Leafs had no chance.

The Leafs took a look at the Pittsburgh Penguins and jointly decided they would never raise Lord Stanley’s Cup again. After meeting the hated Montreal Canadiens in the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time since the beginning of the internet, you just knew the top-seeded Leafs would embarrassingly lose to the Habs. It was so bad that the city of Ottawa enchanted them.

In a public service announcement to tell us that COVID is still alive, the Leafs are definitely not.

The city of Ottawa is having way too much fun at the expense of the Toronto Maple Leafs

Having won as many playoff series since 2004 as the Atlanta Thrashers, you have every right to be trolled on Twitter by your nation’s capital in a COVID-19 PSA. Since 1991, the MLB’s Toronto Blue Jays and the NBA’s Toronto Raptors together have won three more league championships than the NHL’s most snake-bitten franchise. You used to be good, what happened?

The beloved Montreal Expos have come and gone since the Leafs last won a Stanley Cup. Their best player’s son now plays for the only MLB team Canada has left. The city of Atlanta has lost two expansion franchises to Canadian metropolises that are much smaller than it has been since the last time the Leafs won it all. It really begins to feel as if 1967 took place during the Jurassic Period.

When the California Golden Seals were born, the Leafs’ Stanley Cup chances died instantly.
