I cracked up when I read "Naked Chicks & Hockey Sticks!"

Well I guess that says it all.
Good capture for the letter X.

I just don't get it. I guess I'm too naive or something. What's with the hockey sticks and the leaves?

EG Wow said...

Very original! I wonder what the Leafs' wives think about this sign. :)

when I was in Canada in the mid 70s, men sneaked across to Detroit to watch X rated movies.

Hilarious, cheering for the Toronto Maple Leafs while advertising a show featuring naked chicks and hockey sticks.
Which reminds me, we always say "Leafs" instead of "Leaves" don't we? A very Canadian thing. And "Habs" for the Montreal Canadiens. An even more Canadian thing!
Happy New Year!

Great find; however, I'll take the bus to see the fiberglass snowmen!

X-rated!!!

Great neon.

Good capture. Show content is questionable in terms of good taste, but then again there's no accounting for people's taste...

RedPat said...

Good one! It really is great neon! Go Leafs!!

i like the rhyming of naked chicks and hockey sticks :)

Gentlemen's Clubs are neither clubs nor gentlement ;>)...but what a great and creative choice for the letter -- it amazes me what the entrants I happened to see came up with for a letter that seems pretty impossible.

I thought this place had closed --- obviously I was wrong! Love that sign. I remember they used to come up with great puns.

Luna Miranda said...

LOL! great find!

Gemma Wiseman said...

A cheeky sign with the raw humour guys tend to like! A guy designed this I'm sure! Good one!

Andy said...

If the leafs are having a bad game at least there's something else to do.
