A room divided: Leafs split over celebratory Miley Cyrus song

Oct 16, 2013, 5:21 PM EDT

In what’s clearly the most important news of the day, a dressing room beef is threatening to interrupt Toronto’s white-hot start to the season.

According to TSN’s Mark Masters, the Leafs have been using Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” as their go-to victory tune. (This is a big part of any room, like it was in Philly during the Mac Miller “Knock Knock” craze of ’11.)

The Leafs are 6-1-0 to start the year, and Tyler Bozak is being credited for providing the Miley.

But, according to Masters, not all of his Toronto teammates are on board.

The real story here might not be Miley but rather Bozak, who previously stated Taylor Swift is his favorite singer and once dressed up like Michael Jackson for Halloween. It’s entirely possible Bozak will walk away from hockey one day and become a pop singer, possibly under the name T-Boz.

    Just keep Miley away from the Leafs Mascot, Carlton the Bear. There’s already enough scandal going on in Toronto these days.

    This is the stuff that divides a locker room and dooms a team. I predict the Leafs lose 18 of their next 20 and it’s all the fault of this. Or history. Your call.

      “This is the stuff that divides a locker room and dooms a team.”
      LOL. Name one team in any sport that has ever broken up over a pop song.

        I hear it happen to the London Sillynannies…

    There is your difference:

    Toronto at 6-1, changes their song, and the reaction is “We’re wining, who cares”

    In NJ at 0-6 they changed the song, and the fans Boo’d it at every goal.

    Gotta love that good old “bottom line”

    Ok on the Miley if it must be. Just make sure nobody brings any foam fingers into the locker room!

    The Cubs were probably in one of their patented 90+ loss seasons, but I remember they had problems with Sosa playing something after every game. Then again, that might’ve just united them against Sammy. Lol

      One of Sosa’s teammates took a bat to Sammy’s loud boom box….apparently he got tired of hearing Whitney Houston’s “I’m Every Woman”

    I miss the old days when arenas would just play an organ and nothing else.

    • blackhawksdynasty - Oct 16, 2013 at 11:39 PM

      Ditto! Every old barn had an organist and there were few, if any, “TV timeouts”
      Ah, the good ol days….

    Say what you want about Miley Cyrus, but whoever writes her tunes has a good one every now and then. That song and wrecking ball are pretty good.

    Is this Puck Daddy? Then why such a banal irrelevant attempt to be funny?

    • pxland - Oct 16, 2013 at 10:03 PM

      With comments like this it sure seems like Puck Daddy sometimes. Banal and irrelevant indeed.

      Don’t like it, don’t read it. Be banal and irrelevant somewheres else.
