    From an actual American institution of advanced learning came this press release, which began:
    "It had been a long time since the Bumblefuck College women’s basketball team had the sweet taste of victory in their mouths."
    The rest of which was just mundane game action, which unfortunately never included the phrase "I never thought this would happen to me."

    This is similar to a release from Cocksucker U a few years ago.

    I remember a headline back in the mid-70s in the Quad Cities Times about a local high school basketball game:

    East Moline Girls Lick Moline Girls.

    Better that they had the sweet taste of victory in the mouths rather than on their faces.

    When will people learn that "team" is singular?
