The Importance Of Correct Capitalization

John Cole of Balloon Juice (23:34 yesterday if the link doesn't work) writes of a weekend television schedule that featured "a number of important NFL and College Bowl games to watch". For a moment there, I thought: "Great! A quiz show without Jeopardy's stupid answer-with-a-question rule or Ben Stein's dirty pun category titles! But didn't it go off the air years ago?" Continued reading showed that Cole meant "college bowl games" not "College Bowl games". Damn him for getting my hopes up.

Punning Postscript: If the University of Houston had a competitive Mathematics team -- and perhaps they do -- they could call them the Houston Eulers.

I remember watching a game last season in which the commentator kept referring to the Cincinatti Bagels. I've always been more of a fan of the Baltimore Oreos...

Coach, we're going to have to let you go. The alumni were counting on you to win the Field Medal this year, and now that it went to Dr. Isoceles donations are down.
