So I was gone all weekend and missed pages 336-350. Anything epic and worth searching down?

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.

Lou nominates Doc!

See because Doc is fair - if anything he'd be partial against the Devils to ensure he's being impartial. But seriously are there ground rules to selecting an arbiter? Do they have to be certified? I liked that one skit that said it ought to be Colin Campbell because he always gets it right!

Interesting :) I can see it both ways, depending on whether you mean "let the foulest outcome happen to those wretched who deserve it" (worst to worst) or "should bad become unbearable" (worse to worst). Some of the references given from literature mean completely different things, and really aren't any more comparable than "I'll have a pear" and "I'll have a pair". Still, pretty interesting though in that both can be legitimate but really mean different things depending on where and how you use them.

As long as we're on idioms...there's another phrase that has never made sense to me. I can't recall it right now (which is bugging the hell outa me), but essentially...the way it's commonly said involves a negative-negative thing, and it makes very little literal sense. Gah...now I'm going to be thinking about it until I figure it out.

Yup. Had a feeling. That one drives me insane.

Also: As per. I think we had a big blowup over use of the term "as per" on this board a few years back. As per that situation, the use of the word "as" in such a situation is redundant and unnecessary.

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

But all of our favorite Canadian hockey insiders use it, leading to it becoming commonly accepted once again. Things took off on it during this years trade deadline as well. Thank you Mr. McKenzie.

"Jay Pandolfo's last game at Boston University was against the Wolverines," Madden said. "My job was to cover his line. Jay had scored something like 30 goals in 30 games that season. And that was his 31st game. Guess what happened?"

"We always joke about it now," Madden said. "Jay tells me: 'You shut me down that game and you've been shutting me down ever since. The only problem is, now you're playing with me. ' "
