Time for a Leafs Dart Guy update!
The Toronto Maple leafs beat the Washington Capitals 4-3 in overtime last night, all three of this series’ games have gone past regulation, the first time that’s happened for the Maple Leafs’ franchise since the 1933 Stanley Cup Final against Boston.
“Dart Guy” was at the Toronto game, he made the trek to Washington on the weekend and was so stressed out at the game he hauled out a dart and was caught on TV in his blue and white face paint with the darty party in the stands.
Since then he’s swept the nation and Leafs Nation and has become the face of the playoffs.
His name is Jason Maslakow from Waterloo, Ontario and he’s enjoying his 15 seconds of fame!
If you do a #DartGuy search on Twitter hundreds of images come up like his face on the 5 dollar bill, also in a real Canadian heritage moment.
He even has his own Twitter account: @LeafsDartGuy
Dart Guy is now an unofficial playoff mascot of sorts, move over Carlton The Bear…. The Leafs gave him tickets to last night’s game, hopefully he’ll be there for Game 4 Wednesday!
By the way, as of Tuesday morning the Leafs have as many wins in the playoffs as the Blue Jays do in the regular season…
Go Leafs Go eh!
