    Again, I understand why fans say it. I just don't agree they should. Or should I say we?

    I wouldn't say that the crowd doesn't affect what happens on the ice. Thats why there is home field/ice advantage in sports. Fans can pump up a team and can give them confidence or crucify them.

    Fans that can’t spell players names correctly.

    ie: Staal/Stall, Lundqvist/Lundquist

    For some reason I atcually thought G was named Giradi, not Girardi, for a long time. Don't know how I never saw or heard that it was wrong lol.

    Spelling is what people who don't know how to do math use to make themselves feel smart

    Can’t always blame the person on spelling. Autocorrect changes Staal a lot to Stall. I hate autocorrect sometimes because you can fix it to how you wantand it will change it each time you try to fix it.

    You can just adjust your autocorrect by adding in frequently used words in your Text Replacement (iPhone).

    I never knew that. I fight with the autocorrect on my iPhone all the time because it wants to change things all the time. If I text my wife about my son, his name is Luke, it always changes his name to Like. Is this on all iPhones?

    They didn’t allow this previously... or 6 years ago when I tried. Nice.

    When talking hockey and someone says that "Hayes is really smart, isn't he"? They get Kreider mixed up with Hayes.

    People who think an acceptable chicken cutlet is more than a 1/4 thick. Seriously. I am eating a chicken "cutlet" hero and the piece of chicken it's over an inch thick.

    FUCKING UNACCEPTABLE.

    When people say ‘pitchers’ when talking about pictures.

    When I hear that “it’s a doggie-dog world.” (WTF?)

    Sports radio announcers who call experienced players ‘vet-rins.’

    Just about everyone I’m following when I’m in the left lane.

    When a well-endowed woman sits behind home plate during NLCS Game 6 with her ample ‘floaties’ on display for all to see but my TV isn’t 3D.
