FTB - It's Moose Day!

I tried to warn him yesterday, but PPP forced my hand. I present to you all: Moose Day.

From Wikipedia:

The Moose (North America) or Elk (Europe), Alces alces, is the largest extant species in the deer family. Moose are distinguished by the palmate antlers of the males; other members of the family have antlers with a "twig-like" configuration.

Wait, what did you think Moose Day entailed?

  • eyebleaf thinks people are coming out of the woodwork to rattle Sundin's antlers.
  • Koopa Kid wonders if Tomas Kaberle will be leaving his traditional mating area in favor of greener pastures.
  • MF37 wants to know how the Leafs are raising their offspring.
  • Adam Proteau thinks you should watch out for moose and Kyle Wellwood while driving. (They're both fat and will destroy your hatchback should you run into them.)
  • Gus Katsaros went to see the rookies play, and took notes on the size of their antlers (bow chicka bow wow).
  • The Sun thinks that Ian White may lose his spot in the marsh.
  • Alec Brownscombe thinks that our antlers are growing in fine.
  • wraparoundcurl wants you to take a look at the antlers on this stud.
  • Jared thinks that the Leafs are replacing the useless bulls with bigger and better moose.
  • Some fun Moose Facts from the Moose Foundation, did you know that:

    • The word "moose" comes from the Algonquin Indians. These were native people who lived throughout the northern regions of Canada. The Algonquins called this strange looking creature mooswa. It means "twig-eater" or "the animal that strips bark off of trees." Early explorers heard this work and through the years, it eventually changed into "moose."
    • While a male may use its antlers to hold off a predator, a moose's sharp hooves are its first line of defense. Moose are able to kick out in all directions, but generally use their front feet.
    • They're faster than they look!
