Joseph Donato Finds World's Largest Maple Leaf. From the Globe and Mail

Perhaps as an omen to the imminent winning streak of the Toronto Maple Leafs, a 9 year-old boy in Pickering, Ontario has discovered the world’s largest maple leaf.

The Guinness Book of World Records will be creating a new category for the maple leaf, which measures about 13-inches across.

Joseph Donato says there is a downside to finding the world’s largest leaf, however (from the Globe and Mail story):

“People are jealous at school,” he confided, and they’re trying to find bigger leaves.

Only in the great nation of Canada would this story make national news. Though I must admit, that leaf is pretty damn big.

Go Leafs!
