Here’s What’s Wrong with English Majors

© Bruce Allen

This link will take you to the article written by some English major at Dorna about the upcoming MotoGP season. He lost me at the end of the first paragraph: “Every epos begins with a single verse and a new odyssey is poised to get underway.” Too much Latin, too much overstatement (epos, odyssey?), too many unanswered questions? If you like this kind of writing, you’re not going to like most of the stuff you’ll find here. If, however, this kind of writing makes you gag, welcome aboard.

Header for the MotoGP preview at  Mission Winnow, that’s it!

For those of you who may have missed it previously, I am having trouble remembering the actual name of the factory Ducati sponsor. Thus, as is my wont, I try to obscure ignorance with humor. Otherwise, an editor would crucify me for using Missing Window or Wishin’ Minnow or Wishin’ Minion, etc. You’ll get used to it.

    I doth hardly know of what thou speaketh Bruce! No, I’m not an English major!

    Let’s just call it the S.S. Minnow, with The Professor and Gilligan piloting the bikes. This just leaves the question,”Who’s your brolly girl, Ginger or Mary Ann?”

    Ha ha, I did appreciate the author’s reference to verse and [O]dyssey. But the rest of that drivel? Give me Brucisms!


  4. Old MOron Says:

    Oh man, MotoGP FP1 at 04:40 this Friday morning. I might just have to get up and watch. Going to be hell trying to sit still when I go in to work.


  5. Old MOron Says:

    So Brucey, have you seen the FP1 times?
    Lots of guys on the pace.
    Let’s see who can dial things in further.
