Oh Captain My Captain

It’s official: either you love Mats Sundin or you’re an evil bigot. This, according to a new posting on Torontoist, which conflates Sundin-baiting with boorish cultural protectionism. Check out the article yourselves…and if you’ve got a problem with it, the author invites constructive (and, if necessary, virulent) comments.

(By the way, it should be blatantly obvious by now that I’ve got a raging man-crush on Mats Sundin, so I get particularly defensive when people slag him off for no reason. Some of the comments being posted on Torontoist are insightful, but the notion that Sundin-bashing is passé is, in my opinion, wrong–after all, that letter to the editor was written last December, and this in light of Sundin scoring his 500th career goal in celebrated fashion.)
