Did you know?

The Toronto Maple Leafs misspell their team name?

The correct spelling should be Maple Leaves.

:D

After taking control on Valentine's Day 1927, Smythe immediately renamed the team the Maple Leafs (the Toronto Maple Leafs baseball team had won the International League championship a few months earlier and had been using that name for 30 years). The Maple Leafs say that the name was chosen in honour of the Maple Leaf Regiment from World War I. As the regiment is a proper noun, its plural is formed by adding a simple 's' creating Maple Leafs (not *Maple Leaves).

Well, that was a damned quick way to kill a thread that had the potential to devolve into several highly charged but ultimately meaningless squabbles.

I find your lack of faith disturbing. In my opinion, we have the talent to end this thread before a lockdown with no less than seven people banned from personal threats in PMs and phone calls to employers.

I'm not surprised at all that someone of your ilk would think that.

I question whether your mother has been entirely truthful about several important things she's told you in the past.
