for the first time since…

with one comment

i hate it how during a sporting event on tv the announcer will say something like, “amazing!  this is the first time a game has gone into quadruple overtime since march of this year.”  i mean, really?  do you really have to say it like that?  i mean, technically it is correct, but couldn’t you just say, “the last time this happened was in march”?  does it have to be “the FIRST time since…”?

i mean, you could use that for anything then.  this is my first blog post… since saturday.  this is the first meal i’ve had… since breakfast.  i mean, it just doesn’t do anything for me.  you tell me it’s the first time when it actually IS the first time.  i think sportscenter does that a lot: rajon rondo has averaged 20 points, 11 rebounds, and 15 assists.  this is the first time anyone has had these numbers… since chris paul did it last season.  (i just made that last one up) or… lebron james is the first person to win back to back mvp awards since steve nash did a couple years ago.  i mean, really?!?  the first time since a couple years ago?  what kind of first is that?  that one’s actually a real stat.  and i think i’ve heard them say that before.

so whack.
