The Official "Things you wish people didn't say"

The Official "Things you wish people didn't say" 


This is the thread for all things you wish people didn't say.  I will go first and give a few examples.

1. I wish someone had never said "Official 'Things you wish people didn't say' Thread"

2. Dayton Moore when he says "massage the roster".  It just gives me this mental image of Dayton getting a little friendly with the 25 man during a spa session.

3.  I dislike when coaches refer to an injury by the body part.  i.e. I hated it when Romeo would say "Matt Cassel has a head" "Branden Albert has a back".  He's got a leg.  He has a hand.  I have a hand too but the difference between my hand and his is that mine isn't broken.  Just irks me.

4.  My wife is the guilty party on the following but I hate it when people say "every since then...."  WTF does that mean?  do you mean ever since then?  Drives me crazy.


You may now commence your dislikes and there is 93% chance that chitown or steady will include the phrase "every since" in their response because thats just the kind of people they are.

The point is "moot", not "mute"

The always fun "irregardless".  I actually saw that one on Royals.com once.

It's "specific", not "pacific".  The latter is an ocean.

"I could care less".  I think you mean "couldn't care less".

I'm sure there are more.  Those were top of mind.

So and so "needs more seasoning in the minor leagues."

Always bothers me.

I hate the phrase "back in the day".  I had a twenty year old use it to describe something that she did a year ago.  I got T-shirts from "back in the day" before she was born.

Maybe some of the Caribbean players lack the spices they are accustomed to having in their home country and require more spice for their food?noidea

Bill Simmons always accused Al Michaels of popularizing that. And I agree, it irks me, too.

So when Romeo said Bowe had some ribs he didn't mean that he stopped by Bryants on the way to practice and picked up a slab?  Well sh!t that changes everything......

I've noticed people forgot how to spell lose. It is not "loose" or "loosing."

"Where is it at?" irks me as well.

I hate it when I see the word "tounge". It's "tongue", people.

Also........"for all intensive purposes".

I guess I'm more of a grammar freak.

I also hate the word "nasty". Ugh.

I see this ALL THE TIME, here, twitter, facebook, etc. "I went shopping 'than' after that I stopped off and got a bite to eat" OR "I'd rather have Wil Myers on the team 'then' trading away for James Shields and Wade Davis"

I'm adding anything that comes out of Ray Lewis' mouth.  Good player, but damn.  "Fulfilling God's will..." by coming back early from an injury.
