Leafs superfan packs away sign for another season

Sue Rumsey isn’t planning on changing teams any time soon.

Despite the Toronto Maple Leafs elimination from the NHL playoffs thanks to a 2-1 overtime loss to the Boston Bruins in Game 7, Rumsey remains positive. 

Her popular “Go Leafs Go” lawn sign on Niagara Stone Road in Virgil was removed after the final game, though.

“We took it down first thing the next morning before any cars were driving by,” Rumsey told The Lake Report. 

Her sign was changed twice during the playoffs, reading “Set the 63 Rat Trap,” referencing Boston captain Brad Marchand’s sweater number. 

Before the final game, the sign got another makeover to read, “The Woll is Built, Game 7 Win!” in honour of Leafs goalie Joseph Woll, who ended up not playing in Game 7.

Rumsey added that she still has her sign ready for next season — just in case. 

“We’ll move on to next year and hope things are different,” she said.

Until then, Rumsey said she is hoping for another Canadian team to pull through — either the Edmonton Oilers or the Vancouver Canucks.
