“Thang,” “grrl,” and “blingy” will all soon be legitimate plays in overseas Scrabble competition. The OSPD used in the U.S., Canada, Israel, and Thailand remains blessedly untainted.

We Need a Revolution in This Country, Part XXVI

leave a comment »

This is probably old news to most people, but I haven’t been paying attention to either baseball news or Cleveland news and I’ve only just found out from Neil that they renamed Jacobs Field “Progressive Insurance Field.”

This is an abomination. I’m still not over the Mets’ plans to leave Shea, and Neil rubs salt in our mutual wound when he informs me they’re moving to a place horribly named Citi Field.
