“Dart Guy” sweeps Leaf Nation fans.
In case you happened to miss it, the Toronto Maple Leafs won their first playoff game in four years back on Saturday night, in double overtime over the Caps. It’s euphoria for us supporters of the Leafs.
But as they celebrate their big win, one fan in particular has gained all sorts of attention and even quickly became a favourite of anyone watching the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
During the Hockey Night in Canada broadcast, the camera panned to a face-painted Leaf fan who had a hefty, blue-stained beard of his own Little did we know, this character was about to take on a life of his own.
Let us introduce you to the team’s newly adopted mascot: Dart Guy! He had a dart hanging out of the side of his mouth… If you know a Leafs fan with a Twitter profile, chances are they’ve changed their pic to “Dart Guy.”
The identity of “Dart Guy” turned out to be Jason Maslakow, a fan of the Leafs who made the trip from Toronto to Washington for Game 2. He even had LEAFS shaved into the back of his head dyed blue and a Stanley Cup shaved out of the top of his head.
Game 3 is tonight in Toronto and it’ll be off the hook if Dart Guy shows up!
GO LEAFS GO!!!!
