Yeah, I'm giving him some flack (flak?) about his grammar...

After I read this article, I was a little perplexed by the flack vs. flak situation that's going on here, so I visited www.dictionary.com to find out which spelling is correct. Turns out, both spellings are acceptable, which is fine with me. What's not fine with me is using both spellings in the same article. Consistency is key!

On a side note, while I agree that Rollins can be right on about the fans and their crazy amounts of booing (Phillies fans will boo anything--hell, they'll even boo Santa Claus), he's gotta learn to speak a little better when he's talking to the press. Doing good? Doing bad? J-Rol, I love ya, but you need to become acquainted with phrases like "doing well" and "doing badly," OK? You won't sound too stuffy if you remember to say well instead of good in this sort of situation, I promise!
