Thought for the day - Baseball Robert Sheridan bobsheridan bobsheridan@earthlink.net I still remember the first time I said something "sucks" to mean something stunk, in front of my parents, when I wuz a kid on StatNisland. "What do you mean by that?" with a lot of body language, is what I remember. I played dumb really fast, as it, and I, were pretty dumb.

Now you hear it on the TV.

I also hear "shag" a lot, which is Briddish for you-know-wot.

Some words just get loaded up with a lot of baggage and you just can't say 'em any more in front of polite company, the bastids.
