So last night I was drafting my fantasy team (ugh, it's a cap league) and the kid was telling my to draft only Maple Leafs. Which, uh, well sorry guy.  It's a keeper league in its second year, so the really good players were taken (I drafted 3rd overall goddammit).  So he's telling be I need to draft Phil Kessel, because he's the best, and we really need him on our team. Yes it's the kid from this story.

Sadly, I told him Kessel was already taken. Sadly, he told me he's now a two team kid. Pittsburgh and Toronto. As much as I hate the Penguins, At least it isn't Ottawa. So I asked him who he'd cheer for if they played each other.

"The Penguins, duh"
