  2. Its grey if its a conference game, its gray if its a home and home series with an out of conference opponent*

    *= this word might be spelled wrong but if you think I'm going to dictionary.com to look it up on my spring break your vastly mistaken.

    Gray is a color or a former Governor of California.

    Grey is a person in a book that women love.

    I was confused because Thump wasn't the creator of this thread. Or course, it would have had a poll, so that should have been my first clue. :lol:

    people in england apparently can't even spell their colors correctly, no wonder they drive on the wrong side of the street.

    They can spell their colours and while driving on the wrong side of the road seems a bad choice it is the pilot who sits in the right hand seat of all aircraft and ships pass to the right so it would seem that the Brits were only following an ancient traffic pattern.

    Now that we have the grey/gray thing situated, how about the buckeye leaves? Are they green or black?

    meh. i see more british english spellings (cancelled) than american english spellings (canceled) here in the united states. most of our airports, for example, spell the word with two l's.

    First time I saw it with one "L" was at an airport.

    Was always taught two L's growing up.

    most of us were taught two l's. the problem is that according to american english rules, the word (with two l's) would then be pronounced can-SELLED. cancelled looks correct, which is why it is accepted and taught this way on this side of the pond. american english pedants, though, do not (or should not) spell it that way.

    interestingly enough, i've had the correct spelling corrected by a college english professor. i would have corrected him, but i knew it would be a pyrrhic victory. the same professor corrected my use of dived. i was close to telling him that dived is a verb, whereas (a) dove is a bird.
