BUZZ

Sorry. No parting gifts for you. The comma placement is not 'just fine' if one is interested in being grammatically correct, and since our friend feels the need to be a smart a$$ and correct others, I'll be more than happy to explain to either of you why his comma placement is not correct.

We 'should', but I am finding it difficult to get past this fellow's general disposition.

And why is he so infatuated with that word? It makes one wonder.

Actually I am an English Teacher and I can assure you that The comma placement here is fine.

Comma Rules of usage as stated in "Writers Inc. 'A Student Handbook for Writing and Learning'", Houghton Mifflin Company, Wilmington, Massachhusetts, pg. 461

"You may use a comma for clarity or for EMPHASIS. There WILL be times when none of the traditional rules call for a comma, but one will be needed to prevent confusion or to emphasize an important Idea.

As purposed by the author, for example:

He isn't looking forward to this game, (I assure you.)emphasized by the comma as the writers declaration.

I give the poster a thumbs up for exceptional use of punctuation to express his point.


Sorry Saints Fan, But its true, You, made an error. I hope Zooey wasn't watching.

Re: Vikings players say they outplayed the Saints and say "Colts" should have won! (they're not seeing us as the real champs)

We've been "AMERICA'S UNDERDOGS" for four decades and, prior to winning "A" Super Bowl, we learned to deal with it (i.e. "Big Ben", "1-15", "Coulda-Woulda-Shoulda", "The Ricky Trade", "Katrina", etc.) The Vikings (or any team on our 2009 schedule, for that matter) took a beating from us to get to the Super Bowl for four quarters and they can't handle it?!?!?!? We had fans from one team wanting us to lose the NFC Championship to a team that embarrassed them the week before!! Isn't that supposed to be the other way around?? And a league, in which our team has been a part of since 1967, wants to capitalize on a slogan that they never created and a logo that was centuries old!! Now we all know (at least, many of us already know) what kind of fans they really are. I have never heard so much whining from most of these fans that they make... Naw, that would be a blatant disrespect to preschoolers everywhere. Let's keep it moving....

You know what, though, I can't wait for the day when the Who Dat Nation flock "Da DF-Dub" to, first, set up the table on the STAR for Thanksgiving, then come back in February only to leave saying "TWO DAT!!!" Yes, "Lombardi Gras II" for SB X-tra Large 5!!!

I DARE YA TRY TO STOP THE BLACK 'N GOLD!!!!
