It’s Three RBIs, Fucknozzle, Not Three RBI!

Can someone please tell the ridiculous fucking assmonkey shitbag talking heads at ESPN that the plural of “RBI” is “RBIs”, not “RBI”? I have had it up to here with this fake-ass illiterate pseudo-intellectual pompous douchebaggery coming out of the mouths of a bunch of dumb-ass frat boys who all got picked last for kickball! FUCK!

Those who are interested in the opinions of others concerning this important issue, please go here.

    Wait, what? I’m happy with the slangy ribbies, but I gotta agree that runs batted in is RBI, not RBIs. Just like mothers-in-law, or commanders-in-chief, or ladies-in-waiting, or anything else that is unlikely to be pluralized on ESPN. I’m just shocked (shocked!) that anyone at ESPN cares enough to force their presenters to get it right. They must have my really-different-career-path twin behind the scenes.

    No, no, no!!!!!!

    It is Runs Batted In, Mother In Law, Attorneys General, Ladies In Waiting, Commanders In Chief. But the initialisms of the plurals are RBIs, MILs, AGs, LIWs, CICs.

    Ribbies it is. Simple answers to stupid sportscasters.

    Now get my garlic, rosemary and olive oil marinated T-bone on the hickory fired grill and get it rare.

    Gimme another double rocks of Old No. 7, and a drought of the Moose Drool, and I’ll have butter, sour cream and chives with salt and pepper on my baked ‘tater.

    Half a corn on the cob, extra butter, please.

    And for GOD’S SAKE, turn up the game!!!!! *G*

    Damn I miss Vin Scully.

    N the guy who announced for Dizzy Dean games when the guy “slud into third, he’s SAFE!” Or was that Dizzy who said that? He’s like Yogi. Only different. ;-)

    Dude, with all the shit going on in the world of sports, the most rant-worthy topic is how some ESPN guy says “RBI”??? How about the ridiculous, neverending NFL draft? Or the fact that they call the poor sap who’s drafted last “Mr. Irrelevant”? And no comment on Danica Patrick’s first win? I’m so fucking disappointed.

  5. says

    Or if you gotta be whining about usage, how about the misuse of “data” as a singular noun?

    At least some scientists read your blog. The blowhards at ESPN, I’m wagering no.

    Although, given the knitter/crocheter readership, maybe I shouldn’t be so swift to judge.

    Fucknozzle may be my new favorite word.

    On a similar note, can we please shoot the NFL caster that says ‘period’ instead of ‘quarter’.

  7. says

    I swear, we should insist on “RsBI”.

    Re: Data are or data is: how about “are there any news today?”

    Cite: a book called “Fun Fare” from the Readers’ Digest before they became an American subsidiary of Die Stuermer.

    At least they’re not saying RsBI. And I wouldn’t have put it past them.

    And on that note *sniff* what are we doing watching ESPN when we have PBS, the Bravo channel, Comedy Central, and Faux News?

    The only thing ESPN is really good for is replays of the poker championships.

    (Oh, so sorry, revbob. Didn’t see you over there.)

    Shirley, you jest!

    “He missed the touch, he missed the touch!”

    All y’all are KILLIN me . . . who wants to play some strikeout? *G*

    I’m the ’62 Yankees. You can be anyone you want. *G*

    Correctest thing I’ve read yet today.
    And PhysioProf is right about this. RBIs. Are-Bee-Eyes.
