    “Gifted” — ugh!

    It’s time to take one of my pet peeves out for a walk. Can’t we just say “gave” or “donated”? Gift is a noun, not a verb.

    Thank you for your indulgence.

    Gift can be a verb. Merriam-Webster lists it. I would gift you a copy, but you can find it on the internet.

    It’s in the article linked above about the Islanders–took me a second to realize it was the same video. That video starts with the Islanders, but you can rewind.

    I thought it was cool that the Bengals finally got with the times and found a sponsor for their stadium. A new source of revenue for the team and it costs the fans and public nothing. This should allow for them to make some much needed renovations. I don’t see what’s sad about this at all, it’s a win-win for all involved and a move they should have made decades ago.

    A blue, orange, and white Islanders’ fisherman sweater is interesting, but I’ll repost my preference for a dark blue, orange, silver and teal version of what they wear now.

    In the Commanders’ article, it looks like the players have their last names on the front of their jerseys (In “Hi – My name is…” style.)

    Is that right?

    You may want to clarify that Brighton’s women’s team went no NUMBER on back. I believe NOB usually refers to “name on back”.
