    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Is Joe Buck in that rental car commercial?

    The way he struts in that thing like he is somebody is ingratiating.

    Like, I cannot stand him because of that commercial. Somebody really likes himself.

    When a young person calls me "dude."

    A suitor for my daughter used that several times at our first meeting. I treated him decently during his tenure, but I took note of that lack of respect for a girlfriend's father. Thankfully, she is now done with him, but not without some damage done.

    I don't know if someone's already said this but when someone says "I could care less", it bugs me.

    I really could care less what you think about that.

    Please take good notes, TR; I'll be needing this info in a few years. At this point, my wife is concerned that I'll meet boys at the door with a 12 gauge.

    Yea, I don't own a shotgun, so can't help you there.

    I've actually got the game plan that the one's I like, I treat them bad, snookering the daughter into thinking she is being rebellious by loving the guy I hate. The opposite strategy goes for those I want to hit the road...just shower them with praise. That should ensure that my daughter will want nothing to do with them.

    Re: Things people say that irritate you

    I've had a couple chats with my daughter's boyfriends where the conversation had phrases like "we don't do things like that in this house" and "if you want to welcomed back in this house" accompanied by skunk eyes and hulking up.

    We usually got along fine after that. It was always Mr. Tucker then.

    It seems to me that you're showing a great deal of ignorance on the subject. There are literally dozens of different types of rap, and you're lumping them all into one group as if their cultures are identical. I might as well make all my judgments on country music based on Taylor Swift.

    I can only guess as to how you would incorrectly define "rap speak", but to imply that it could have the same meaning as Ebonics is ridiculous and shows even more ignorance. You say they sound like idiots? Try telling that to Talib Kweli. Odds are, he's significantly more educated and accomplished than you (no offense--but for what it's worth, the odds say that he's probably more educated than the rest of us, too).

    And speaking of Ebonics, how do you think people came to talk like that? Africans were brought over as slaves, barred from education, and then thrown into extremely dire conditions when slavery ended. Do you think all the other cultures in the world were speaking eloquently within a century or two of being introduced to education? How do you think the British feel about Americans and the ways we abuse English? Do we sound like idiots, too?

    Re: Things people say that irritate you

    I can't stand it when people put an "s" at the end of someone's name in some weird attempt to pluralize them.

    Jim Bowden used to do this a lot when he was with the Reds, saying things like "If we can get the Griffeys and the Dunns healthy ..." Or "in our lineup, with the Kearnses, the Dunns, the Griffeys ..."

    So annoying. Are there more than one of these people?

    Well at one point, in Seattle there was a time they wanted to get the "Griffeys" in the lineup. Heck, even here there was a time that Jim Bowden was correct when talking about having guys like the Boones and Larkins in the line up
