Philly sports fans aren't the only sports fans whose grammar can sometimes be screwy...


...Apparently this problem also extends to sports fans in Detroit. Hey, I'd wear a bag over my head, too, if I kept making punctuation and spelling errors all the damn time. My only question here is, exactly which Lion is this person a fan of? It looks like this person is only a fan of one of them... And does that Lion know that his fan is not so swift with his or her writing skills?

I found this picture in an article over at Deadspin. And as long as we're talkin' football, I say let's gooooo, Iggles! (Iggles is Philadelphian for Eagles, of course.)

Apparently there was no jinx this week. :) You know I'll be the most hated person at work again if the Iggles beat up on the Giants, right? (By the way, it's totally worth it.)

I guess the Lion in question is Daunte Culpepper...

I don't know much about football, EVula--is Culpepper the only decent one on the team?

EVula said...

Culpepper is #11. I only know this from my beloved Wikipedia. :)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Oh! Duh. :) I should have thought of that...

Before Daunte had #11, it belonged to Roy Williams, so hard to tell who the fan was/wasn't supporting.

Ahh, gotcha...thanks for the heads-up! I'm glad YOU know somethin' about football, 'cause I sure as hell don't! :)
