This was an experiment that clearly did not work out as planned.
According to the uploader of the below YouTube video, he’s just a Maple Leafs fan who owns a GoPro camera and wanted to capture some memorable playoff moments. However, what he ended up getting was visual evidence of a memory that will probably stick in his sports-fan brain for the rest of his life.
In any case, this Leafs fan mounted his GoPro to the top of his TV, planning to record him and his friends while they watched the deciding Game 7 between Toronto and Boston in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Of course, we all know how the game ended, and this fan apparently had enough of a sense of humor to clip together a range of reactions and post it online. There’s the elation when Phil Kessel scores to put the Leafs up 3-1, and the utter heartbreak caused by Patrice Bergeron.
Check out some Maple Leafs fans going through the entire gamut of emotions in the video below.
