Catch my liveblog of the USA’s double-elimination game against the upstart Netherlands team over at SI.com’s FanNation already in progress.
Must ..... resist .... the .... obvious .... joke!
(Is it sacrilege to state I'm rooting for the 'Nether region'?)
and to think of the grief I got for referring to Shelly as "Sandy" Duncan...
I don't get it. My wife calls him "Sandy." Did you mean it as an insult to his manhood?
 As I recall, yes. It was in the same vein as calling Pavano "Carla." Some took offense at the apparent misogyny.
Ah, well, that's not how Becky means it. For her it's just a case of mistaken identity. Leave that "Chris" Everett stuff to tools like Jim Rome.
 Randym77, there was no misogyny, apparent or otherwise. And, I'll add that I took a great deal of offense to the PC police showing up and mislabeling me. Just because someone decides to call you a name online doesn't make it true. It's one of the reasons why I don't post too much at the Banter anymore.
