I don't really know a great deal about sports. I can keep up with most any game of football, basketball, baseball, soccer, etc. But for the most part, I'm more of a take it or leave it kind of girl. I don't get too involved in any aspect of any game. However, despite that fact, there is a certain issue in the world of sporting that bothers me deeply. I don't, repeat don't, like the way some of the teams names have been abbreviated. Who decided to call the Chicago White Sox and the Boston Red Sox the Chisox and the Bosox? Bosox, okay maybe I'll give you that one. But the Chicago abbreviation is forced. It just is. It's bad. It's not cute. And don't even get me started on UConn and UMass. Those are even worse.
