"The Official Site of Canada's Team"

Wow. The browser header on Raptors.com is trying pretty hard.

But they're undefeated and they added a second loss to the LeShaq Cavs. Stay undefeated and, without question, the Raptors will be Canada's Team.

A quick exit poll in downtown Toronto this afternoon capitalized on the immense season-opening buzz generated by the colossal win. Poll results show respondents' top choices when asked, "Which team is Canada's Team?"

1. Toronto Maple Leafs (currently 1-7-2)
2. Toronto Maple Leaves (a lot of respondents weren't sure about pluralizing)
3. Toronto Marlies (Maple Leafs/Leaves farm team)
4. Edmonton Oilers (6-5-1)
5. Minor Midget Jr Canadians (supposedly best junior team in the world)
6. Vancouver Canucks (6-6-0)
7. Ottawa Senators (6-2-2)
8. Calgary Flames (7-3-1)
9. Chicago Blackhawks (7-3-1) and this one has some blogosphere backing
10. Montreal Canadiens (6-6-0)

Other notables
17. Toronto Blue Jays (75-87)
26. Phoenix Suns (there is some loyalty to Nash)

29. whatever pick-up team Steve Nash is playing on
30. Toronto Raptors (1-0)
47. Alanis Morrisette's road crew softball team, The Jagged Little Steals

Next time, we'll poll outside of Toronto too.
