Score the basketball as in, The Nets need to score the basketball. For most of my lifetime score was enough

The quarterback position as in: what is needed to play the quarterback position... See above

Pretty awesome. There are no degrees of awesomeness. Either something is awesome or it is not.

And of course the usual suspects of At this point in time and On a daily basis.

Stop it!

My wife refers to breakfast as "brekky"... I dislike this.

I don't like the far too common use of expletives. And I don't mean only the curse words, but also include those words we use to fill in for them or just to fill space with a bit of emotional emphasis. Does every single thing said demand an expletive to convince me the person is serious? Is the speaker incapable of putting emphasis in a sentence without peppering it with expletives? Try something new: build a vocabulary, say what you mean and use the words themselves or the word order to give emphasis. For example:

"Get out of here!"
"Get the Hell (f, frick, heck, etc.) out of here!"

Is the second really more powerful than the first? The first is what the second is saying, but the second is used to make it an exclamation. Isn't that what the exclamation mark (in writing) or tone of voice (when spoken) is meant to do?

Believe me, as a former NCO, when I raise my voice people know I mean it.

I hate it when political pundits on TV say 'look' right before they give their opinion. I guess it's supposed to be some kind of assertive statement that their opinion is the valid one, but look..... it's just annoying.

Here's one I am personally guilty of. When explaining something with some measure of authority (in my case, often the American Civil War), starting a paragraph with "You have to remember."

No, they dont have to do anything.

Just had to send an email off to a colleague in Saskatchewan - made me think of another one:

Bunny Hug.

For some reason hooded sweatshirst are referred to as "Bunny Hugs" in the province of Saskatchewan.

You ever see a 220lb farm boy hockey playing touch guy whine that he spilled beer on his favourite "Bunny Hug"? It's a sad, sad scene. And not because of the spilled beer - because a grown man is whining about his Bunny Hug.

Than-you, everyone! This post has been cathartic, and helped me work through some deep-seated stuff regarding word choice.
