We can teach kids there’s no i in team, but it’s way more important to teach them that there’s no a in definitely.

Teach 'em the difference between "than" and "then", and between "lose" and "loose". Teach 'em that it's "could have" and "should have", not "could of" and "should of". Teach 'em that it's "subsidiary", not "subsiderary", and that it's "prima donna" and not "pre-Madonna" (I actually encountered this not long ago) and "expatriate" and not "ex-patriot". And teach the fucking talking heads that it's "pundit" and not "pundint" -- I get so tired of hearing supposedly educated people say "pundint"; if there was one good reason for shitcanning Bill O'Reilly, it was for all the times he said "pundint".

Well, now, there, then......sports are all well and good, I suppose. But not at the cost of a proper 3-R education. When Little Johnny can't read, write or do basic math, all those fancy assed stadiums didn't do much good, did they?

All you got to do is lookit the aftermath of Friday Night Lights to see the problem. I'm not a fan.

Considering all the liberal indoctrination they have in the curriculum these days, it's a flicking miracle they have any time left over for anything else.

If they don't know what to do with an apostrophe and a comma they should not be allowed to graduate from high school or college.
