Larry thank you for the edits and fixing my error about the Mavericks. I appreciate that very much.
Thanks for the edit, but why did you change my title? Lol I hope it wasn't intentional, but it was just really weird. But again thanks for the edits.
Thanks for the edits and feedback on the Group D preview. It's much appreciated
Thanks for the edits and feedback, Larry. I see what you mean about "The MLB"...I get in that habit with random teams and leagues from time to time (I always catch myself saying "The Rutgers" for Rutgers University, too).
Thanks for the edits and feedback.
Another Cameroon at the World Cup piece in need of an edit if you get the chance: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/400014-2010-fifa-world-cup-preview-cameroons-strengths-and-weaknesses
Thanks for the edits on the mock, Larry!
actually, larry, it's a convention in British sports journalism to refer to teams as collective nouns, so for instance, "Cameroon ARE a talented team," as opposed to the American convention, "the United States IS not one of the best teams at the World Cup."
It's not a matter of grammar, merely a cultural/geographical convention that I choose to follow since the vast majority of my readers (since I write about soccer) are Brits or from Commonwealth countries.
I don't know if you're familiar with Spanish, but it's similar to what they do in Spanish-speaking countries.
Thanks for the edit, though.
here is the link where Howard was referred to as the culprit of Marquis elbow. http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/recap?gameId=300526019
