The Grammarphile attempts to talk about that other sport. You know, the one that isn't baseball...

I know you guys are used to hearing me talk about baseball, but today I'm not going to talk about baseball. (Really. Promise!)

That's because I'm talking about football instead.



I'm not really into football, but the one little iota of me that actually cares about the sport roots for the Eagles (Iggles!), since I'm a Philly girl at heart. But the Eagles have kinda pissed me off lately, what with signing Michael Vick and all.

I'll say this--Vick did his time in jail. He was punished for the bad stuff that he did. I'm not opposed to him returning to football in general and getting a second chance at his career. But I am opposed to him coming to play football in Philadelphia. He may have done his time, but I think he's still an asshole, and I wish the Eagles would do a better job in helping to keep Philly an asshole-free zone, sports-wise.

I do wish that the idiot who wrote this little blurb above would have written Vick's as opposed to Vicks'. Because what would be worse than one asshole Michael Vick in Philadelphia? Two asshole Michael Vicks in Philadelphia, of course!

That's too funny - I wrote about the same thing today. (Vick - not the error. :-) ) And I agree - I just don't want him in Philly. Go somewhere else!

@ Missy: Too bad I'm an only child; if I had siblings, I'd throw 'em in, too. ;)

Haha, I understand...sometimes I, too, really do forget that other sports exist besides baseball! :)

There is nothing I hate more than the incorrect use of apostrophes!

I understand. My biggest pet peeve is when people use semicolons incorrectly!
