Grammar Police

Hate to be that guy, but...

I've got lots of writer friends who from time to time make a grammar or spelling mistake in their columns or articles. And I've been one to do it as well on my little platform here. But over the years, I've found myself falling into being a bit of a grammar hound. I blame Mrs. Thagard from 4th through 6th grade English. Lady was a hound.

However, when your gig is PR - for one of the premier teams in the NFL - make sure you get at least the headline right.

Looks like spelling isn't much of a big deal in San Fran.
Yes, someone forgot the second half of "I before E".

(And when will people figure out the difference between "loose" and "lose"?)

And of course, if you'd like to follow me on Twitter, you can do so: @harry_long. I'd also appreciate it if you 'liked' the Facebook page of A Total Waste of Blog. You can do that at the top right of this page, or you can do it here. And you see all those buttons under the title of this post? That's how you share this thing. Get to it.
