“…And That’s Why He Signed Andy Carroll” of the Week

Clarification Needed of the Week

Jerome Boateng, Bayern Munich

Mesut Abi and Me in Vegas one of the best Players in the World and a great Friend pic.twitter.com/X2tpitINSV

— Jerome Boateng (@JB17Official) June 19, 2013

Jermaine PedantJermaine Pedant says… Aside from the obvious typo of Mesut “Abi”, and the fact that he looks in this picture like someone wearing a mask of him, I require that you elucidate as to the meaning of “one of the best players in the world and a great friend”.

Is it insinuating that:

a) Mesut Özil is both one of the best players in the world and a great friend of yours?

b) Mesut Özil is one of the best players in the world and you are a great friend of his?

c) you are one of the best players in the world and Mesut Özil is a great friend of yours?

My money’s on a), but c) makes for a compelling ‘banter bet’. b) would just be obsequious to the point of creepy.

Nonsensical Motivational Slogan of the Week

Graham Gartland, Shelbourne

A champion is someone who gets up when he can’t.” ~ Jack Dempsey” @BusyDillo @DillonDarren @vperth

— Graham Gartland (@Garts6) June 20, 2013

Jermaine PedantJermaine Pedant says… If you can’t get up, you can’t get up, no matter how hard you may try.

If you do manage to get up, that means you were able to get up and the notion of not being able to get up is entirely discredited.

See me.

Postscript: I have since been informed that I misread Graham’s intentions…

@FootballBurp haha I sent that to my mate cause he actually couldn't get up! It was tongue in cheek ! #keepup

— Graham Gartland (@Garts6) June 21, 2013

@FootballBurp @Jermaine_Pedant he's gotta go back over tweets and investigate the back story.. Sloppy from someone who should know better!

— Graham Gartland (@Garts6) June 21, 2013

My sincerest and unreserved apologies to Graham and anyone else affected by my uncharacteristic oversight. I assure you that I feel suitably chastened.
