I don't think anyone has mentioned the Canadian (hockey? pardon my

ignorance) team the Maple Leafs.

A couple of weeks ago my 4-year-old son, after saying "flied" numerous

times and beginning to follow the model and say "flew", made an analogy

to cry and told me about someone who "crew" at his school.
