I would say so. Not a great one, but it fits.

How the same person can be credited with creating the title, "The Audacity of Hope" and yet speak with so little hope is be on me.

Can we get a WOB ruling here?

Billy Packer just commented on how the Florida State basketball team has "fought through some diversity."

Please note that "that is be on me" is on the list of approved-to-use-to-pay-homage-to-previous-clueless-use WOBs, and is therefore not subject to WOB mocking.

This one is a bit dicey, as some exams are indeed done in a prostrate position. Still, I think prostate is most likely intended, thus WOB status is granted.

Re: Tracy McGrady runs with "Escape goat"

A uy I worked with loved traveling between St Louis and the flordia town where his kids moved to - Some town called Pepsi Cola (he did say that was where a lot of Pepsi was produced).

Another great wob from a recent post on the off topic forum. The poster thought death meant you couldn't hear.

Here's one from Mark I. on KXIC--800 (the NCAA finals radio broadcast): Speaking of fans, he said: "Wrestling is a tight-niche sport." (Don't misunderstand, I'm just having fun; I love MI's commentary.)

Big lack toast and tolerant fan personally.

I have a hard time believing "Lack toast and tolerant" wasn't intentional. Anyone know the context?

once had a boss at BCBS-NC who used ALL of the following:

mythology (methodology)
appendum (addendum)
proprietory (proprietary)
appical (applicable)
mandantory (mandatory)
subsiderary (subsidiary)
sequestion (sequestration)
overzeelious (overzealous)
flustrated (flustered + frustrated, I guess?)
excape (escape)
adverse psychology (reverse psychology)
pro formula (pro forma)
ursup (usurp)

He also frequently said "if worse comes to shove" ... a bizarre combination of the phrases: If push comes to shove & If worse comes to worst.

My favorite memory of him: He once stood before a group of hundreds of hospital CEO's and Controllers at a meeting and made repeated references to payment "mythologies" for "indignant" (indigent) patients

Found this one in the Lounge today.

"His profile says he ran a 4.6 in HS thats fast enough to be a BT WR. I'm not playing the he's athletic because he's black card. I know thats what your thinking so dont denie it. He was a very good basketball player and was a very good baseball player in hs so he's obviously pretty darn athletic."

Think that qualifies.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned, but I saw one where someone said "wait-to-go" instead of "way to go"

I could be wrong but thats the way I understood it from the Bob Bruce radio show when he was interviewing a so called expert on the BCS.
Haha.

My friend's grandma thinks Gatorade is pronounced "Gator 8." Even worse, she forgets the number eight and refers to the sports drink as GATOR 9
