Reporter angrily confronts flailing hockey team


This isn’t a scene from a Canadian adaptation of “Borat,” but it could be. CTV reporter Lance Brown isn’t taking the Toronto Maple Leafs’ late-season meltdown very well, and the result is a masterpiece of unintentional comedy. Brown tries to find out why the Leafs are playing like “crap” by asking them the question directly. Brown, sounding zero percent Canadian, preaches that the Leafs need a culture of “hate” to win before getting in the faced of the team’s baffled coach and stars about their epic fail; at the time of this video, the Leafs had won a paltry five of their last 24 games. “There’s nothing funny about what happened this year,” Brown insists. There wasn’t, until now.
