Why do we always say the second half?

Postby Surfs up » Thu Jul 13, 2006 8:07 am

It isn't really the second HALF. If it was the ASG should have been played a week or so ago. And why don't they play it closer to mid season?Then we could say second half. I'm sure there ar many teams in the hunt for a playoff spot that would like to have those 7-8 games back . Even if they played .500 in them they could be a little closer to first place.

I realize that. Its like when people type the word prolly instead of probably. They say its the lazy way of saying it.

Please develop a new term for it then...
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

When you cut a sandwich in half you really aren't actually cutting it in an exact half
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Well I guess you could say back-end of the season, but I doubt it will catch on. I wouldn't go around talking about what a great back-end Glavine had last year.
