And having travelled the whole country fairly extensively, I feel pretty confident in saying that the complaining and self-pity is exclusively a Toronto thing.
Bob McCowan was going on about the same thing the other day. He went on a rant over how Toronto fans will wail away over how they want the apple instead of the orange, and then when they get the orange they rise up and scream - "what the hell was wrong with the apple". He also finds it to be a unique feature here.
Bob McCowan is an ass and if you give them the orange when they want the apple what do you expect? lol
