It was only recently that I discovered that the hated Toronto Maple Leafs' team logo is actually a maple leaf (which makes sense, in retrospect). For the longest time I thought it was a blur, as in the image I edited below.
I must confess, the act of blurring the supposed maple leaf on that jersey was a challenging task, as even as I applied the blurring tool in my photo editor, all I saw on the original was a blur. So I don't really know if I got it all:
It never really occurred to me that watching a Leafs' game revealed the same visual effect as an episode of Survivor when somebody's bikini slips off or when a streaker runs through a football field.
As an Ottawa Senators fan I am biologically predisposed to despise the Blue & White - it's not something I can control. So I sought medical help, and got a referral to a specialist. The ophthalmologist tells me that the condition - which is known as Ocular Foliacontemnosis (meaning leaf-hating eye) - isn't serious and shouldn't limit my ability to lead a normal life.
Unless Toronto's traffic lights are shaped like maple leaves too... that could cause some chaos should I ever feel a need to visit there.
