Domi, Tie

Toronto Maple Leaf designated goon role model, locker-room spokesperson and poster-boy for socially-sanctioned goofy behavior. There was apparently a longtime fad in Vancouver amongst the young and testosterone-crazed that involved shouting out “Tie Domi!!!” just before body-checking elderly persons off the sidewalks. Domi’s popularity in Toronto was partially accountable to the fact that the Italian community think he’s one of them. He’s actually an Albanian, an ethnicity that Mozart had strong opinions about, and he’s a fairly decent television actor. Also has a brother who sells computers to big, stupid,  cities.
