The dude doing the on-pitch interviews on Sunday looked about 12. Did a perfectly good job, mind.

Also, anyone who goes into a shop or restaurant or similar establishment, looks at the menu, then starts the conversation with the person serving them with "Can I get ..." needs to take themselves out to a remote location, and shoot themselves. Leaving written instructions for their discovered corpse to be thrown into the sea, where they belong.

I use 'can I get...', but I picked it up in Scotland, where I did some growing up, and it's the standard way to ask for something, rather than from American TV or, God forbid, people.

The same goes for 'gotten' too. Stop it!

I quite like "ill-gotten gains" existing in my mental dictionary.

If we're descending into generically bad American crimes against the English language, I offer the most egregious of all: normalcy.

‘Uptick’

An effrontery of a word that deserves to be pinned out on the grass, covered in gravy and consumed by tigers!

All the above. '100%'

That get my craw - nobody is going to say 92%, 54%...

It makes me 'super' angry - super is good, so how can anyone be 'super' anything?
