A Twins Tweet Needs Tweaking

The your in red? It’s a hit. The you’re that begins Kevin Love’s Twitter message? It’s a swing and a miss. I must, therefore, twit your tweet. I must correct this labor of Love.

“Don’t give up your day job” is right. You can’t hack it as a professional baseball player, and based on the hack job you’ve done with your/you’re, a writing career also is out of the question.

When you were throwing out that first pitch, Love, you should have tossed away that first word as well.

I’m not the only one, by the way, who feels strongly about your/you’re. The five-second video below is proof. It’s an excerpt from “The One with the Jellyfish,” the premiere episode of the fourth season of Friends — the episode in which Rachel had rambled on for 18 pages … front and back!
