Saw this earlier. It absolutely killed me.

My favorite part is how after he was told the answer was incorrect, the other two contestants just stood there with blank stares.

I've heard that contestants to appear get some type of study guide before going on. I wonder if there's any truth to that.

Am I the only person bothered by the placement of the comma relative to the second quotation mark?

Yeah because it's referencing a name as opposed to an actual quote, right?

Not that it really matters, but...

The placement of the comma is wrong, and it doesn't matter that it's referencing a name or word rather than a sentence or clause or whatever. In American English, commas and periods go inside quotes; in British English, it's the other way around.

If you're interested, see this link (it's near the end): http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/566/01/

Grammar Nazi's unite!

I also really, really hate how no one uses an Oxford comma anymore. Ex. "I'd like to thank my parents, Bill Clinton and Oprah." ---> "Wow, your parents are Bill Clinton and Oprah?" Y U NO comma before "and"?

Do you think the nickname 'Evgenius Malking' would stick?

Yeah, but none of the Grammar Nazis noticed the lack of a period at the end of the statement. Pffft . . .

I'm impressed that he was even able to come up with the name Crosby.

Everyone knows Crosby. Unfortunately, he's pretty much the only household name in the US when it comes to active hockey players.

That's why it's a good question. A little misdirection with the "led the NHL" bit. Even a casual fan of the game (not the Penguins) might make that mistake.

If you wanna get really technical... those aren't even quotes, they are inch-marks. It's a typographical faux-pas to use inch-marks instead of quote marks. Quote marks in that typeface are curved like 66 and 99.

And the hyphen in 2011-12 should be an N-dash to denote a "range". It should be written as 2011–12 not 2011-12.
