Leafs' Rielly on the arrival of 2020: 'I don't think it's even the end of a decade'

What is time?

Sure, if you follow the typical constructs of time, 2020 marks the ending of the 2010s and the beginning of a new decade.

Morgan Rielly, however, doesn’t really see 2020 the same way most people do.

“I don’t think it’s even the end of a decade,” Rielly said to Jonas Siegel of The Athletic. “Every new year is the end of a decade. Two thousand and eight to 2018 is a decade. Two thousand and nine to 2019 is a decade. Every f---ing one is the end of a decade. So all these people saying the decade’s come to an end — that happens every new year.

“So, it’s the end of the century, it’s the end of you-name-it.”

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t ready to get this deep only hours into the new year.

If you really think about it, by the time you finish reading this, another decade has passed.
