Farewell to the Old Season

Waffle Nation and Leafs Nation:

We bid farewell to 2010. For two Brian Burke years, we have constantly accompanied the Leafs on the road to not so much honor and glory. In these latter times, as in the days of our prosperity, we have invariably been models of courage by throwing waffles, and fidelity by staying loyal to our team. With fans such as us, our syrupy cause could not be lost; but the waffle war would have been interminable; it would have been a fan war, and that would have entailed deeper misfortunes on the Leafs.

I have sacrificed all of my interests to those of the waffle country.

My Waffle Nation friends, we will continue to serve the Leafs. Their happiness was our only thought. It will still be the object of our wishes, for a winning team is a happy team. Do not regret our fate; if we have consented to survive, it is to serve winning waffles to our Leafs. I intend to write the history of the great achievements the Leafs have performed together, and how waffles played a silent part. Adieu, 2010 Leafs. Would I could press you all to my waffle heart.

Waffle Guy (and partially Napoleon Bonaparte)
