Basketball

UT men played Middle Tennessee State (at MTSU) last night. ESPN's experts have tagged MTSU and one of the 'teams-to-beat' this season for their returning experience. It was a good game.

UT 76 - MTSU 66

The women played UTC (Chattanooga, at UTC) and needed late free throws to come away with a win. Replacing all 5 starters from a double national championship team is tough eh?

UT 66 - UTC 63

Meh

Finally the word gets its due:

There is nothing meh about the journey of the latest entry in the Collins English Dictionary. Rather, it illustrates how e-mail and the internet are creating language.

“Meh” started out in the US and Canada as an interjection signifying mediocrity or indifference and has evolved, via the internet and an episode of The Simpsons, into a common adjective meaning boring, apathetic or unimpressive in British English.

The word was chosen over hundreds of others nominated by the public for inclusion in the 30th anniversary edition of the dictionary, to be published next year. Jargonaut, frenemy and huggles were among entries suggested to the Word of Mouth campaign, run in conjunction with Waterstone’s. The panel that made the final selection chose meh because of its frequent use today.

Meh was submitted by Erin Whyte, from Nottingham, who defined it as “an expression of utter boredom or an indication of how little you care for an idea”. The dictionary will say that meh can be used as an interjection to suggest indifference or boredom – or as an adjective to say something is mediocre or a person is unimpressed.(link)

Been saying this word since the old Lineage I days and see it everywhere (on the 'net). So it's just due to be a word :)

Not Good Enough to Win

Heh. The Eagles and Bengals played to the first NFL tie since '02 today and they should both be fined for ugly play (yes it was that bad).
"Terrible," Bengals quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said.No one was more surprised than McNabb that it ended so soon -- 3 hours, 46 minutes after the opening kickoff. The 10th-year quarterback thought it would keep going until someone scored, just like a playoff game.Wrong."I didn't know that," said McNabb, who played a leading role in keeping it tied. "I've never been part of a tie. I never even knew it was in the rule book. I was looking forward to getting the opportunity to get out there and try to drive to win the game. But unfortunately with the rules, we settled with a tie."It was the first tied game in the NFL since Nov. 10, 2002, when the Falcons and Steelers finished 34-34 with Michael Vick and Tommy Maddox matching each other pass for pass. In this one, the teams matched each other gaffe for gaffe.The Eagles (5-4-1) have yet to win a close(link)
I'd like to think the NFL would apologize for anyone that actually watched this game.
