Oh my, we need some help here...

Please go look up the word "clinch" and you will see that I am entirely correct.

Ahh, let me help you: from www.Dictionary.com:

v. clinched, clinch·ing, clinch·es
  1. To fix or secure (a nail or bolt, for example) by bending down or flattening the pointed end that protrudes.
    1. To fasten together in this way.
    <LI minmax_bound="true">To settle definitely and conclusively; make final: "The cocktail circuit is a constant and more contracts are clinched over pâté than over paper" (Ann L. Trebbe).</FONT minmax_bound="true"> <LI minmax_bound="true">Sports To secure (a divisional championship, for instance) before the end of regular season play by having an insurmountable lead.
  2. Nautical To fasten with a clinch.
p.s. gts, my good friend would certainly know that i was just picking on him in good fun.

I know you're correct. I was needlessly waxing poetic. Read the last line of my post.

You know, I need to do a better job of reading your posts... I am missing the sardonic humor in many of them... I told you before that it was ME that was clueless! Your writing is simply too sophisticated for me in this medium. The problem is my waning intelligence... haha

I am going to be much more thorough in reading your posts!

gts is a deep guy; maybe he was being metaphysical in his approach? Maybe he was portraying a playoff berth as some heretofore unattainable goal--a pipe dream, a reunited first love, that brass ring that was always just inches out of your grasp. Maybe gts sees basketball as a metaphor for life: the Lakers represent each and every one of us, and the prospect of playoff glory in the horizon alludes seamlessly to our own unrealized and infinite potential.

Or maybe it was a typo.




Good times are here. Playoffs for my favorite team, Dodgers are 3-1, and I got

He did, although we are not looking too good right now. Penny got beat up in the first inning.
