Toronto Maple Leafs seek help on Kijiji

Things are pretty desperate in Leaf Land right now. The team has lost its last six games, fans have been charged for tossing jerseys on the ice, and Peter Horachek looks like he's aged 10 years since taking over as interim head coach just a few weeks ago. Not to fear, however, because some caring fan has taken the initiative to solicit help for the team on Kijiji.

The following job call appeared on the site yesterday: "We have been shut out in 3 of the past 5 games and have scored only 2 goals in the 5 games total! We are currently looking for anyone who can physically put the puck in the net for us because our players aren't capable of doing that. FYI: you might get struck by a jersey during a game -- Sincerely, The Toronto Maple Leafs."

I've seen funnier spoof ads, but this one sure does capture the exasperation that's so quickly hit Leafs Nation. But, hey, let's look at the bright side: every game lost, we inch closer to the possibility of drafting Connor McDavid.
