For the past eight weekends, making a trip to Ricoh Coliseum has been a part of my routine. After all, the Marlies have scheduled themselves to be at home for one or two games in all of those weekends. This time around, however? It's a road trip, their last of the season. It's fun for me; this afternoon, I got to go to the Exhibition grounds as a fan and catch a Toronto FC game (they lost). For the Marlies, however, it still meant hockey, but a few hundred kilometres away. The game was against the Syracuse Crunch, and it turned into a physical event and a 6-3 loss.

This game is meaningless. Like, beyond meaningless. The Leafs have no shot at the playoffs, no shot at taking at a serious level, it's just a game for the sake of going out with their heads up high.

Some people have other teams that they like to follow, and others wait until they have to pick somebody new. Theoretically, I land in the former, but my other teams? Vancouver, Washington, and Buffalo. Add the Leafs as my primary focus, and it hasn't been a good year. Here's my thought process into picking a bandwagon team.

The division is clinched, but hey, I'm pretty sure the Toronto Marlies would be happy with getting to second place in the conference. Six games back and three games in hand made it a stretch goal, but an achievable reality. It the results trend this way, however, they'll have to remain content with third, as the blue and white fell 3-1 to the Rochester Americans.
