Ahh … I love my Florida Panthers.

The Florida Panthers square off against the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Eastern Conference Semifinals of the 2023 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, and to get prepared for the series, the Panthers are making sure they get the best advantage they can while at home.

Trying to hilariously keep Maple Leafs fans out of their FLA Live Arena, the Cardiac Cats are restricting ticket sales to just residents of the United States. Meaning, if you’re from Canada and you’re trying to purchase tickets off of Florida’s official website, you won’t be allowed. You’re banned. You’re locked out. You’re shut down. And I absolutely love it!

“FLA Live Arena is located in Sunrise, Florida. Sales to this event will be restricted to residents of the United States. Residency will be based on credit card billing address. Orders by residents outside of the United States will be cancelled without notice and refunds given,” a message read on Ticketmaster’s website.

Though Canadians won’t be able to buy tickets through Ticketmaster, they can obviously get resale tickets, but the problem there is that fans will be paying for them at a much higher price.

As a Florida Panthers fan, I find every bit of this outright gorgeous.

God, I love how triggered Canadians are about this. (RELATED: Seattle Kraken Eliminate Colorado Avalanche From Playoffs, Only Team To Beat Defending Champions In First-Ever Series)
