It’s silly season again around here.
No, I’m not referring to the onslaught of political ads with ominous soundtracks that tell me nothing about the candidate, but claim to have all the reasons why I shouldn't vote for the other guy.
Rather, I’m referring to football season. For some, the return of the Giants, Jets, and Eagles to the gridiron means the return of mental gridlock. This failure of basic cerebral function takes the form of pronoun bastardization. As in the Giants fan that proclaims around the water cooler on Monday morning that “we played a good game yesterday, we just couldn't get it done.” Or the Jets fan that laments “we are never going to get to the Super Bowl this year” (well, duh). Or the Eagles fan that asks the very valid question “did you see how we were completely outclassed yesterday, again?”
