8:35 A.M. Now hiring ; Proofreaders !!! … Toronto Star …

2015MThoughtsHeader

I am well aware that my ‘ style ‘ of writing ( within my blog ) crosses grammatical and punctuation lines … I do so , however , to better emulate the nuance of a ‘ conversation ‘ with the reader … I also try my best to be consistent within the structure I’ve put forth … It also must be noted that I do this at my leisure to ‘ let off steam ‘ at the end of the day … That aside !!! …

This person gets paid to be a ‘ writer ‘ ?!!! … I shudder to think about engaging in a conversation with the creten responsible for the snippets of an article that I have displayed below …


 

A couple of quick fuses which led to a dustup among Phil Kessel and David Booth at Friday’s Leafs practice is getting regarded as a constructive for the downtrodden Toronto hockey club …

‘ getting regarded as a constructive ‘ … a ) it is either ‘ regarded ‘ or has not had an opinion formed about it by the person that is being reffered to … Not in the process of ‘ getting ‘ regarded … b ) ‘ a constructive ‘ … WHAT ?! … ‘ constructive ‘ is being used as an adjective in this mangled sentence structure … Describing … WHAT ?!!! …

The Leafs have shown unacceptable levels of competition to each the coaching staff and fans , going an alarming 8-32-three considering that mid-December , and threatening to finish with the worst record in two decades with just seven games left to play in the season …

‘ to each the coaching staff and fans ‘ … a ) Should read ‘ to both ‘ … b ) ‘ 8-32-three ‘ … either use all words or all numbers … Not both ! … c ) ‘ considering that mid-December , ‘  … With the misuse of the comma the reader is left to ponder what an 8-32-three ‘ considering ‘ is …

Could the scrap recommend higher dysfunction inside the team ? Former Leafs coach Ron Wilson lately recommended Kessel’s feelings can spill into his relationships with teammates …

‘ Could the scrap recommend ‘ … I love this one !!! … Let’s butcher the English language with the same misused word in back to back sentences !!! … a ) A ‘ scrap ‘ cannot ‘ recommend ‘ anything … b ) Ron Wilson made no ‘ recommendation ‘  … He stated an ‘ observation ‘ …

The set-to in between Kessel and Booth looked innocent at initial , but it became immediately apparent the two weren’t fooling around they tried to break free of one another and get a punch off , but it in no way progressed that far. Teammates rapidly stepped in and separated the two from undertaking far more harm …

‘ the set-to in between ‘ !!! … a ) WTF ?!!! … b ) ‘ looked innocent at initial ‘ … At ‘ the  ‘ initial … WHAT ?! … c ) The whole sentence is a run-on , nonsensical BABBLEFEST !!! … d ) ‘ separated the two from undertaking ‘ … Either ‘ causing ‘ , ‘ inflicting ‘ would be acceptable here … Preferably with the added clarification of ‘ to one another ‘ … The word ‘ undertaking ‘ has a completely different definition that doesn’t apply to this sentence …

As for what began it ? …

a ) Aside from the stalwart ‘ never start a sentence with a preposition ‘  … b ) This incomplete sentence incorrectly uses ‘ began ‘ … Either ‘ started ‘ or ‘ caused ‘ would be acceptable words for this attempt at asking a question …

Horachek stated James Reimer will start against Ottawa Saturday , and Jonathan Bernier will critique his Thursday overall performance from which saw him pulled soon after allowing 3 ambitions against Florida …

a ) A comma is not required if you are linking only two thoughts with the word ‘ and ‘ … b ) What the Hell are ‘ 3 ambitions against Florida ‘ ?!!! … c ) This a beauty !!! … ‘ from which saw him pulled ‘ !!! … ‘ Which resulted in him being pulled ‘ would provide some much need cranial relief for the reader … d ) Overall ballsup in punctuation !!! …

It’s expected that Trevor Smith ( decrease body injury ) will return to the lineup …

Is the ‘ writer ‘ of this , shall we say … Grammar schoolteacher’s nightmare of an article !!!! … Asking the reader to ‘ decrease their body injury ‘ at this point ?!!! … This one , however , could be attributed to the simple neglect of typing the letter ‘ d ‘ …

Nazem Kadri also tends to make his return from a four-game suspension , and Horachek stated he wants his center to focus on being the team’s leader over the final seven games of the season : rive the group …

a ) ‘ tends to make his return ‘ … Should read ‘ INtends ‘ … b ) The comma / and mistake again …
