    Yes, he’s from Puyallup… and here’s hoping he gets a no decision (since he’s now out of the game and the Rockies are in need of a comeback). I’m glad he won’t get the loss… I was feeling kinda bad that I was rooting against my fellow Puyallupite.Question: Did the announcers pronounce Puyallup correctly? 🙂

    yes, they did pronounce it right. Amazing! and they are even guys from the east coast.bummer about the end results of the game though.

    Deb, did you spell academy like you were from Canada??

  4. Deb

    🙂 I think I got that from somewhere online. Oops. I am not sure, is that the Canadian spelling?

    Hi, am I the token Canadian reader? 🙂 I haven’t seen ‘academe’ spelled like that before BUT (geek alert) I just looked it up on dictionary.com and Academe is NOT a synonym for academy. Academe is pronounced ak-uh-deem and means the academic world/community, a place of instruction or a person living in the university environment. Pretty close to academy but a little different. And who knew I would learn something tonight? Guess it adds a little colour 😉 to my life!
