"Pitch-count" when referring to how much a football player will play. :scared:

Yup, great catch. Just saw/heard this for the first time, in reference to Frank Gore, the other day on Rotoworld. And one time was enough to make me incredibly unhappy. Unfortunately, I can see this becoming the new hipcool fantasy buzzword, particularly for RBBC situations. :rolleyes: Oof.

I think DeMarco Murray will get a ton of RBI's this year.

Dunno. What's his triple-slash?

These pretzels are making me horny

"#### you 2016". People died in 2015 and will continue to die next year. Every time a famous person dies there's about a million tweets saying fu 2016. Stop.

In this vein, the whole "momma bear" thing absolutely infuriates me.  Shut up, mini-van-driving soccer mom.

Adrian Peterson, having missed almost an entire season, may start with a pitch count, but should still finish the year among triple crown contenders for NFL running backs.

Hang out with consultants enough and you get a treasure trove of idiotic sayings that are just moments away from worthy inclusion here. When I pointed out that one of the consultants had used the wrong terms on a draft, he said:

"We'll just de-word that later".

Well . . . yeah. ;) Consultants are the source of about 90% of these linguistic offenses IMO.

100% agree. Spent 4 years with a crew of Accenture people - granted they were puking this #### up 15-20 years ago so it wasn't quite as bad.

It really gets me when you hear complete idiots using these retreads trying to sound intelligent.

Brady rained down a couple jumpers from three point land last night. Looked good. As long as he keeps his penalty minutes down this year, I could see them doing well on the power play.

:confused: Look, what was his plus/minus? Or his ratio of ground outs to air outs???

90% positive I heard Joe Buck say it about Alshon J. during the Bears game Sunday.

Remove the 2nd "R". People argued that both were correct. They may be for all I know.

I think I'd go with both are correct. It should be "sherbet", but I don't know anyone who can easily pronounce it that way without sounding like a doof.

The only person I have ever heard really pronounce this word the correct way is Jack Nicholson when he was on the stand in A Few Good Men.

if someone ever creates the technology where you can press a button and nut-punch a sports announcer, it will get used any time they say this.

really confused as to what's going on here. why did ""cream cheese filled"" get quotations as if to imply a direct quote. were the rest paraphrased? and are you against people using the phrase "the word "whilst"" or people using the word "whilst".

please advise.

This is really double-plus ungood.

Accrossed.

I have a manager that uses this. I swear she tries to come up with a reason to use this word multiple times in any staff meeting and everytime it is like nails on a chalkboard to me.

Splain this one please.

I think he means, "After administering a richly deserved beat down on his boss, Bull Dozier drug his boss accrossed the parking lot by the hair and slung him into his trunk for further treatment."

Or "nails accrossed the chalkboard."
