Any parent would be deeply concerned, but she is such an enthusiastic supporter of her son that I know this is a little crushing as we get near the playoffs. My wife was that way every time our son was hit by a pitch or took a charge.

Maybe we should have a car wash to raise money for the family to help them get through this dark time of a week long recovery from a tweaked hamstring? It may help offset the expense for the Icy Hot.

It will go well with the prayer vigil.

I think Paul might need to be visited by 3 ghosts this Christmas Eve.

PaulB is still bitter because he thought we had zero chance of losing to Charleston and then was shown to be wrong.

Taking out his frustrations here in this thread.

I won't make that mistake twice.

In fact I am instituting the "Paul B Reverse Voodoo Strategy", you simply state the reverse of what you believe and boom...you will be wrong every time! I learned about this on a trip to Haiti when I was hiding out from my bookie.

Tribe are going to get smoked tonight.

On the other hand, "Indians" is plural thus, "Indians are".........

Using Collective Nouns Correctly 04-chairshot

Nouns in the collective class can be used in either the singular or plural form depending on the context of the sentence. For example, family is a collective noun because it refers to more than one person sharing a relationship or camaraderie. However, you can also use this as a plural in referring to groups of families.

Using collective nouns in sentences can be confusing because it's sometimes difficult to discern whether to use plural or singular verbs and pronouns. To use verbs and pronouns correctly, identify whether the collective noun refers to a group or unit working as individuals or in unison.

When the unit is acting in unison, it is appropriate to use the singular.
When the members of the unit are acting as individuals, it is appropriate to use plural forms of verbs and pronouns.

Dixon must be so proud that his thread has turned into a grammar lesson.

This is the most liberal arts thread ever. TribeInTheBurg covered anatomy and human physiology, Paulbintheburg covered critical thought and religion, and now wanm65 has covered grammar.

You won't see this on the UNCW message board - unless it's a lesson about how not to hyphenate.

It was nerd smack, I am sure Dixon would see it that way.

Of course if he could somehow see through the fog of the immense pain and agony he is going through.

Dear Baby Jesus, please make the pain go away in our point/shooting/swing guard's hamstring, so that he can help lead the TRIBE to the Holy Land of an NCAA bid and help Marcus Thornton channel his inner Steph Curry-Davidson beast mode.

Thank you.

PS- Thank you for my semokin hot wife and my two sons, Texas and Walker.
