Excape? WTF?

Recommended Posts

I sometimes see a wrestler or a performance described as “dominate” (instead of “dominant”).

It doesn’t annoy me though. I am always fascinated by the varieties of American English.

Cricks are slightly shallower and overall has less water, than creeks.

eXcape and eXpecially - Ticks me off, really annoying.  

The Iowa Hawks commentator specifically deserves mention. Would be much worse if Iowa wrestlers scored TD’s in bunches instead of their go-to push a lot offense.
