Hey yo, watchit there Pooja.

Canadian fans will fill up the Molson Centre and the AirCanada Centre no matter how bad the teams are (if bad, Montreal fans will boo, Toronto fans will quietly eat their sushi).

We will also watch lacrosse, rugby and yes, curling (the Brier is a world class bonspiel - who would have thought Gallego would get mentioned before bonspiel?).

The Jays have a great following and passed 3,000,000 for many years in a row until the Yankees and Red Sox started having wallet fights - now we get close to 2,000,000. Not bad to watch a team play for third place every year.

wish curling were televised here instead of, say, BOWLING. (prepares for wrath from a moderator named after a NYC avenue)

Fairweather fans - the jays topped out over 4,000,000 for 3 years in a row (91-93)

Then it fell steadily to about 2,000,000 where it has hovered for the past 5 years.

It actually went up last year which is increadible when you consider that SARS killed the tourist industry here.

That's a lot of fair weather fans. Do you think that the main cause is because of spending or because of the strike??

Everything has to do with winning.

The Jays and Raptors would sell out every game if they were winning. Only the Leafs can lose and still draw fans.

The Raps and Jays have a lot of bandwagon fans in Toronto (I guess that would make them bad fans).

Yankees have the worst fans? Yeah right. The Yankees get on people when they suck but why shouldn't they when they are paying their salaries.

At least the Yankees don't chant "Red Sox Suck" at games that don't even involve the Red Sox, as the Boston fans do to New York. They even chant "Yankees Suck" at Patriot games.
