Toronto Maple Leafs Parody Song “Do Something” Pretty Much Sums It Up (Video)
A Toronto Maple Leafs fan named Steven Ryan has created a Maple Leafs parody song called “Do Something,” based on the song “Say Something” by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera. However, before showing it to you, I need to provide you with some context.
In case you haven’t noticed, the Toronto Maple Leafs are in the midst of another epic meltdown that has all but mathematically eliminated them from the postseason. At time of writing, the Buds have lost 11 games in a row and 14 of their last 15. They’ve gone from 10 games over .500 on December 17 to four games below on February 6. Since the turn of the New Year, they are averaging just over one goal per game.
It’s really, really bad. And for Leafs fans it’s absolutely excruciating. This team, after all, is the Yankees of the NHL. They are the richest, most valuable team in hockey and they play in the fourth-largest city in North America. Only instead of winning all the time, the Leafs are perpetually mediocre. They’ve only made the playoffs once in the last decade, and on that occasion they built a 4-1 third period lead in the third period of Game 7 against the Boston Bruins AND STILL F*CKING LOST.
So what does it feel like to be a Leafs fan? Imagine all those insufferable Boston sports fans didn’t have the Patriots, Bruins, or Celtics on whom to expend their passion. Imagine they just had the Red Sox and the New England Revolution, who are the Blue Jays in this analogy. Now imagine it’s 2002, and the Red Sox still haven’t won a World Series in forever. That’s what it’s like to be a Toronto Maple Leafs fan. It’s pure agony, every year.
Now you can fully appreciate this song. To most of us it’s just hilarious. But it probably makes Leafs fans genuinely sad:
