Dallas Mavericks Need To Be Schooled in Punctuation

Since I’m the one who has been designated the “grammar prig” by commenters, I’ll go ahead and open myself to some more fire.

Unless it has been recently corrected, a message frequently flashed on the AAC video boards during Mavs games needs some help. An alert, language-loving FrontBurnervian reports that when it’s time to get the crowd fired up, the video board ribbon that circles the stadium and the video board suspended over the court both flash: “Lets go Mavs.”

Now, I can do without the comma after “go.” It would make me happy to see it. But whatever. It’s a video board. Some rules need to be bent. But the missing apostrophe? I think we can all agree that a championship-caliber squad deserves that apostrophe.

Ball’s in your court, Mavs video board message people.
