Grammar Nazi Revisited

Nice new words from the world of professional baseball:

"Ownage" -- referring to the command a pitcher or hitter has over his opponent--i.e., he "owns" the other player: He can get the other out reliably, or he can hit safely against him. 

Going "yard" --which means hitting a home run, hitting the ball out of the field of play (the "yard").

These are entertaining and accurate coinages, not the result of stupidity or laziness. 

Mispronunciation:  "Breakfuss."  Also "breakfusses."   

Eubonics:  "In-shaunce."

On the radio: "If he would of done that, he'd of had it how it could have been."
