Priorities

 

What's most important?

 

Our weekly sports commentators seem to think that talking and sounding like their buddies is more important than using our precious English language, the de facto language for business and cross-border communication around the world.

 

The offenses go way beyond dropping the "g" in their verbs…runnin'…droppin'…thinkin'…throwin'…soundin'  stupid.

 

Millions of people listen to their crappy language every week. Most serious…young people who idolize prominent athletes along with the broadcast analysts.

 

Most of them have had some semblance of a college education. So why do they insist on protecting their imagined personal macho at the expense of our  English language?
