Usually...

...I just complain about the crappy grammar I find on websites.

Tonight, though, I'm actually gonna complain about somebody's crappy math skills.



The Phillies are currently up by 4 games...not by just 2. But you'd only know that by actually checking the standings at the bottom of the web page. If you were going by the info on the little scrolling blurb at the top of the web page, you'd think that the Phillies have only half of the lead that they actually have.

I was an English major, and I generally suck at anything math/numbers-related, but even I know that two is not equal to, or the same as, four. Sigh.

I just want to complain that the Sox blew a huge lead and lost to the Phillies today. That is all.

@ Bridgete and Yours Truly: Good job to your Sox. They played well this weekend! (And no offense to you Sox fans, but I am thrilled that at least my Phillies didn't get swept. That would have been embarrassing. Plus, my parents were at the game today, and I know they enjoyed seeing the Phillies win that game!) :)
