incidentally, i talked to a woman this morning who says she goes to all kinds of leafs and raps games because a relative owns a box, but that she's never actually watched a basketball game when there. she just chats with her friends and hangs out while the 'men' watch the sports, but has never bothered to watch herself. aaaack. how many people would do anything for box seats to a raps game?
anyways, at least she is finally talking about the team, asking questions and showing interest. i think the identity of this raps team (holy shit, we finally have an identity!) is making an impact on the general public. it's certainly the biggest buzz since prime vc. maybe even more so. toronto sports fans like guts and grit, and this team is showing it in spades.
