Run-on sentences, time/date/place addition

  1. Indeed, the phrase is straight from the Department of Redundancy Department.

    I'm assuming you refer to the level of play when you give the final score, or close to it. "... a 34-32 victory in the third round of the Division II playoffs." Later, maybe say: "Winner will play East Loser at 5 p.m. Wednesday in the semifinals."

    There are ways to spread that info out over the first 4-5 grafs without using a clunky, out-of-place sentence.

    Not always. With the loss here Saturday a team actually advanced to a bowl game (Canadian thing).

    Winner advanced to a better bowl and loser to a lesser bowl.

    However, you can still say: Podunk now plays in Bowl A while Bumfuck heads to Bowl B.

    Less words, same point.
