MISSPELLING MONDAY for May 18, 2009--part deux


I took this picture during the Twins/Yankees game on Saturday. In between screaming at Joe Mauer that I love him, screaming at Justin Morneau that I also love him, taking pictures of the aforementioned ridiculously attractive ballplayers, and actually paying attention to the game, I was also spotting grammar and spelling errors at the ballpark.

If you refer to someone as a representitive, I'm betting she could accuse you of sexual harassment, couldn't she? Tee-hee!

I'm sorry I missed that, I was too busy watching the Yankees win - LOL! What a GREAT game!

Haha, very funny! It was a great game for a Yankees fan, at least. ;) (I do like the Yankees, but NOT when they are playing the Phillies or Twins!)

Mauer's and Morneau's home runs were pretty hot, though...*sigh*.

OMG. You simply can't seem to escape them for even just a day!

You'd think that at a baseball game I'd be paying less attention to grammar and more attention to BILFs (newsflash: there are 9 HOT GUYS on the Twins...do they just grow 'em hotter in Minnesota?), but noooo, the bad grammar will find me and MAKE me pay attention to it anyway. Grrr.

You do know, those 9 hot guys on the Twins aren't FROM Minnesota, right? They probably all came from other states or countries. Because, you know, who thinks of Minnesota and baseball at the same time? If it were hockey, they'd all be local boys. But not baseball.

My favorite Twin, Joe Mauer, actually IS from MN. :)

My other favorite twin, Justin Morneau, is from Canada. I don't know where the rest of the Twins are from, though. Perhaps once they join the Twins they become incredibly hot, I dunno... ;)

I thought all the hockey players were Canadian or European, not local...? Or am I mixing up sports or something?

Grammarphile:

I applaud your attention to detail on that one. Great catch. Maybe the Yanks' bad spelling is why people aren't shelling out for those field-level seats?

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Thanks, Proofreader! I'm glad I spotted this mistake. It gave me something to giggle at while the Twins were busy losing!

I was surprised to see a LOT of empty seats on Saturday in every section, every price level. There were definitely some open seats that were in the pricier sections, but tickets in my row were $22 apiece. There were 17 seats in the row, and only 5 people were sitting there...strange for a Saturday afternoon Yankees game, I think!
