The Corruptor

My little brother is now a Leafs fan.
Not my little brother in the biological sense, but you know Big Brothers/Sisters of Canada?
Yeah, that little guy.
He wasn't much into hockey, well the NHL anyway when I met him. The only player he really knew anything about was Wayne Gretzky (his favourite I might add) but he didn't have a favourite team.
Since he is pretty much a sports fanatic, I figured I'd expose him to more hockey. So I did, we went through my old hockey cards (Hadn't looked at those things in years), played NHL 07 of the playstation, hell I even showed him my old video tapes of the 93 Leafs/Blues series (stupid movers lost the Wings series, I burnt the Kings series).
He also noticed my brand new, pretty much never worn (for late season purchase reasons) Leaf hat. He wanted to wear it, so I did the next best thing, gave him my old one.
Now he is a Leaf fan, and shall remain so, if I have anything to do about it.
Good thing I got him on the right track before he became a Sens fan or something, *shudder* there is no comming back from something like that.

Also, if you can donate the time, Big Brothers and Sisters of Canada still needs a ton more volunteers, click the link if you want to find out more on how to do so.

Great move jared! The best way to keep Leafs Nation strong is to actively recruit the newbies to the sport.
