Incorporate room temperature butter and maple syrup. Spread maple butter on pancakes. Enjoy!

Now that I think about it, I do have a pretty serious gripe with Canada. And it's a lot more important than the nonsense we've been discussing.

It relates to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Many years ago my wife and I went to a Capitals-Leafs game. About midway through, she looked at me and asked: Why are they the Maple Leafs, not the Maple Leaves. I had no idea. (Of course, this is the same woman who, after going to literally dozens of baseball games with me over the years, one day looked over to me and asked why the guy on third base never runs. She was referring to the third base coach. It's good a thing I still think she is adorable after all of these years. . . .) Though she is not a sports fan, it's amazing how many references to the Maple Leafs we've heard over the years, and she raises it every time.

So, my friends to the North, can you please explain why they are the Maple Leafs and not the Maple Leaves? Then the next time she asks I actually will have an answer.

The most common explanation is that the team was named after the Maple Leaf Regiment (Conn Smythe's regiment in WW1), and for that reason "leafs" is correct although the precise grammatical reasons are beyond my understanding.

Well, it's like this Ray....if they were called the "Leaves" that would imply a group of "Leafs", but since most players on Toronto seem to play as individuals and not as a team, we call them "Leafs". Ok, not buying that? ummm....

I think taken literally, the word leafs means a collection of individual leaves, where leaves means the group of leafs. Does that make any sense?

Soon they will be "leaving" to play golf anyway....

Either spelling is grammatically correct. If that's what your referring to.

Thanks guys. The explanation doesn't need to make sense, I just need to have one in my back pocket.

I'm no longer mad at Canada. In fact, since you were nice enough to provide answers, you are free to hop on the Capitals bandwagon as we make our way to the Stanley Cup. Boy do I hope we face and beat beat the friggin' Penguins.

If you meet the Penguins, make sure OV says "hello" to Matt Cooke ;\)

I can't stand Cooke more, though. Avery's another one, and Carcillo on the Flyers who only fights little guys.

I agree Adrian. They are dirty hockey players and when they try to start stuff they are quite selective who they go after. You never seen that with the "tough guys" of the past like Probert, Domi etc - they would take on anyone, anytime.
