    It's Rich A-u-r-i-l-i-a

    New guy climbs on soap box...

    C'mon guys. I know spelling isn't necessarily a strong point on many online message boards, but I have now seen Rich Aurilia's name spelled more ways than I care to name.

    If you are indeed a Reds fan, which most of us here claim to be, then at least figure out how to spell the freakin' ballplayers' names FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!

    There's a difference between typos and misspellings too....so don't even claim your fingers got ahead of you.

    ....climbs down.

    Thank you. Rant over.

    better yet - use the initals "RA"

    Or - use what the majority of people on this board call him.... "Mud"

    I agree...it may be nit-picky, I admit, but come on...and it's not just Aurilia's name...I have seen:

    Naron
    Willy Mo
    Clausen
    Kiesler
    Merker
    Wethers
    Gullet

    and even Brenamen

    Hopefully we can call him ex-Red soon and it won't matter.

    I like it.

    Oh, and it's "board's" - you know, the possessive.

    Don't hit me.

    When I first got on the internet the way people spelled - or rather misspelled - simple words really bugged me but I never lectured anyone about it. Now, it doesn't bug me so much and I still don't lecture people about it. And I don't type in all caps either. That's more annoying than people who misspell words.

    As long as you know who you are talking about I don't see the problem. But I guess different things irritate(SP?) everyone.

    Best Casy scenario is that we put on a pot of Coffee and sit down and talk about it. We should quit Beliesle-ing each other. Clausen the truth is...we're all Reds fans here.

    Let him without sin cast the first Stoene. It Freeles good to get along. We don't all have to be such Machadoe men all the time.

    I'm sorry. I was never good at spelling. It's on my permanent record.

    Thanks, Mr Aurilia. I know how you get sensitive about things, like starting and the spelling of your name wrong. I hope Mr. Gamons doesn't spread too many rumors about you.
