Play-By-Play Commentary

According to my electronic dictionary:

News flash: A single item of important news that is broadcast separately and often interrupts other programs.

Newsflash: No entries found.

But I'm just being a jerk. And I'm just getting started. Typos may be forgiven in layer tennis, but never are non-brilliant replies that don't make tons of sense. Consider:

1. The tractor in the photo does not resemble a Transformer, no less a Decepticon. Albeit, it is a bit outsized, but I don't see much to suggest horrors, robotics, world domination.

2. Chicago has a storied legacy of newspapermen and women who dedicated themselves to alcoholism and attractive print. This flyer's supposed to reference some local news bulletin? No one at the Billy Goat would buy that with a nickel, nor a haypenny.

3. Naz had the advantage again two rounds earlier for the first time in the match since the toilet. We've come a long way since then, but I'd call this a slip, particularly since Naz only has one round left. There's just too much room for Chris to step in and demolish the play. Naz's life is in his hands, dude, if you know what I mean.

Man could I go for a Billy Goat cheeseburger right now, though I wouldn't stand for no Pepsi.
