Guess I missed the recent CNNSI.com article entitled, “Punctuation purge: New Brewers P Sabathia ditches dots in ‘CC’.”
I had wondered from the start where the periods had gone…I noticed on many websites, including the site that runs our fantasy baseball league, that it was “CC,” not “C.C.” I initially had thought it was an oversight, but realized that these sites were still going with “J.J. Hardy,” “B.J. Ryan,” and “J.D. Drew.” In my desire to be as proper a writer as possible, I went with the standard…I did do a search on one of the most popular search engines (rhymes with “Doogle”) and found nothing…but my second attempt resulted in finding the above article.
I apologize CC.
I would also like to acknowledge that the other blogger on this site, Jesse Motiff, as far as I know, has been writing it correctly all along.
So…that only leaves one unanswered question left…”Why do the Brewers untuck their shirts after each victory?” My sister-in-law Cathy pointed this out to me, and all I can gather is that it is some superstition that a Brewers’ player came up with…if anyone knows who, when, where, or why this ‘untucking’ started, please let us know…thanks.
