HUMP DAY GRAMMAR for April 27, 2011


Yikes!  This error wouldn't be so egregious except that it came from a Phillies blog.  This writer mistakenly referred to the Phillies' catcher, Carlos Ruiz--otherwise known as "Chooch"--as Cooch.  Which he isn't.  Our catcher is not a cooch.  I could understand some silly fan of another team either making this mistake honestly or making this mistake purposely/snarkily, but when Phillies personnel make errors like this?  Unacceptable.  It's not like we're the Nationals, who I'm pretty sure have more spelling errors associated with the team than they have fans of the team.



Thanks to Mama Grammarphile for spotting this funny, baseball-related Hump Day error!

Well, think of it this way: there are worse C words out there than Cooch. Does he have a Twitter account? He can rant off about it!

A cooch without a game is a sad cooch indeed. ;-) Funny stuff! Go Red Sox!

LOL, Carlos! By the way, I really need Carl Crawford to get out of his slump--the success of my fantasy team depends on it! :)

Hey! I totally didn't know that Francona is a Phillies alum! :)
