“Elite”

 

Major disconnect!

 

There's a mobile trash dumpster across the street from my home; it shouts the amazing name:  "ELITE"

 

Can you imagine, in your goofiest dreams, elite trash?

Mitts and Gloves

 

More baseball terminology

 

Deciding 5th game…the TBS commentator for Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Milwaukee Brewers said that the catcher tried to block a wild pitch with his "glove."

 

Where have you been, dude? "Gloves" are worn by the fielders; catchers wear "mitts".

Yankees, 49ers, Red Wings, Giants, Angels, Bears, Celtics, Lakers…

 

They're BRAND Names, not plurals!

 

This fact bears repeating…the names of sports teams are BRANDS. They are not plural words that designate a collection of players. Hence, Derek Jeter is not a "Yankee" and Eli Manning is not a "Giant".
