Toronto Maple Leafs. The plural for 'leaf' is 'leaves'. There is no such thing as 'leafs'. Every time I see one of their scores, I cringe.
And I see one of their scores an average of four nights a week.
Why is the NBA played in quarters, yet NCAA basketball is played in halves?
What kind of team mascot is a 'Blue Jacket'?
Feel free to add your own...I've got more, I just can't think of them right now. I will, though. I always do.
Excellent - I now have material to occupy my brain while on the toilet tomorrow morning.
That 4 quarters vs. 2 halves has me up in arms....
I've got a team of researchers on the problem as we speak.
Okay...here's one for you. No cheating. In the four major professional sports (in this country, anyway) -- MLB, NBA and NHL and NFL -- there are eight teams who have 'nicknames' that do NOT end in 's'.
I nailed the wild and heat - then my brain gave out after 30 seconds.
The one I had the hardest time with was Avalanche because, around here, you never hear them refered to that way. It's always the Avs. Which, of course, ends in 's'. I type Avalanche all the time -- never, ever say it, though. Took me about a half-hour before the light went off on that one.
Heh...doubtful. I just went home last night and found that I was more irritated with other things.
Give me one of your pet peeves. Something that makes you scratch your head and think, "WTF?"
C'mon....you've gotta have one. EVERYONE'S got one. In fact, I just thought of another one, but I'll wait a while before I start that rant. I've got a hub to work on, actually. Maybe after I make some progress there. In the meantime, let's hear yours.
Okay...enough of that for one night. Now...why is it that when you watch a baseball game (and I love watching baseball...it's one of my passions) the keep the camera on a player until he either spits, scratches or swears?
Oh yeah....and why on EARTH is a beer close to 10.00 at a ball park. I'd imagine it's the same at football stadiums, basketball arenas and ice arenas. And...what's more...why do people PAY 10.00 each often enough to become....shall we say...feeling their oats?
Are they nuckin' futz?
I always figured NBA just did quarters to squeeze in more commercial time thus = more $$$. Maybe it's just a weird conspiracy theory I have.

In what year will the Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup? (If ever? lol)Even though I am Canadian I am not a Leafs fan. If they haven't won in the last 40+ years will they ever?

Being a long time Toronto Maple Leaf fan, I find my team again fighting to make the playoffs.What I don't get is why does this happen year after year. Why is it, that Toronto, Canada's largest city, a very wealthy city...

We've won four straight.. playoffs may still seem like a long shot (we just need to win 25 out of the next 40) but, hey, anythings possible. Anybody else still crazy enough to be a fan?

Did you see that game coming? 7-2 sweep over Vancouver. Does this score serve to make the Hawks look more inconsistent as a team or serve to make them look like contenders once again? Or, flip it around. What does this...
