Bad grammer and spelling on message boards.
Resonance...metal folding chairs or hard tile floors cannot be beaten when it comes to firing off a loud fart.
Acronyms that I have no idea what they mean.
I hate that name. I want to hurt people who use it.
I've even seen Arkansas fans use "Arky" from time to time on TD. :thumb down:Another one: "You mad"
"Well, that win/loss didn't really count because such-n-such happened, and if that doesn't happen then Team X would've won. Therefore, I'm discounting that.""That play didn't lose the game." BS, sometimes, that play DOES lose the game.
True that...It makes me wanna slap someone....
"That play didn't lose the game." BS, sometimes, that play DOES lose the game.
But, why, when applied to an individual hailing from the state of Arkansas? I see it as a badge of honor.Full disclosure--I'm not a native, so the question is legit fact-finding
To me, the term Arky, when used by someone not from Arkansas, is belittling. I get images of backwoods people way behind current times. In the show Beverly Hillbillies, the characters never say where they're from, but make most of their references to this area and SW Missouri. This is what most of America thought of when they thought of Arkansas, and the term Arky has been around for a long time to collect and carry that stigma. When I was 15, I was on vacation with the family in Michigan. A lady was making small talk and found out that we were from Arkansas. She asked if we had rented our shoes for the trip. She was surprised that we owned shoes in Arkansas, and that's just 22 years ago.
Referrees anticipating calls.Referrees calling a walk just b/c a guy makes a quick move. Happens everytime, and sometimes it's not a walk. If you don't know what I'm talking about, review BJ Young's move in the 2nd half last night that was called walking. I watched it 5 times. The ref was an idiot for calling it. Just b/c you cut with your pivot foot crossing over does not mean its an automatic travel.
