    "Begs the question" for "brings up the question"

    A colleague suggested that northerners probably think southerners have to mentally mis-spell words before saying them. This explains why southerners speak slowly.

    OK I understand what you're saying. But IMHO, when you say "You're welcome" you are merely acknowledging to the other party that they are "deserving" of your attention to whatever action took place. Has nothing to do with taking credit for anything. More like exchanging pleasantries.

    Make sense?

    Jessie Palmer used to kill me with his frequent use of the phrase "dialed up". All analysts used it for a while but he ran it into the ground. The one I hate these days is "intriguing". Games or matchups cannot be interesting anymore. They have to be intriguing.

    The one phrase I absolutely hate in regards to football is " he or they are playing with a chip on his or their shoulder(s)". Who cares?

    The use of present and future tense when referring to something in the past. I guess it is a short cut to using words like would have, will and had. I'm usually all for cutting words out but not at the expense of making sense.

    I'm not sure that I have ever heard this used appropriately.
