Over the end of last week, I caught a Pestilence (actually just a cold) and, preferring not to go out and cough on the world at large, had a good deal of time to stay home and think about things. Like leaves. And leafs. No, really, "I saw a single leaf falling past the window, and when I came out, there were leaves all over the lawn." Right? But the hockey team is the Maple Leafs. I had never really thought about that before. It is quite reasonable, since they are named after a single important leaf, but. . .well, I still do find it quite interesting. A singular plural, if I do say so.
