| More Sports Board|| Why are only some football penalties referred to as "personal fouls"? - benhamin5555 on 9/27/14 at 10:59 pm|
When really, almost all penalties are committed by one player.
I get that "personal" fouls are usually of the unsportsmanlike conduct variety, but the nomenclature still doesn't make sense....

1. Seattle is an awesome city. Had a great time hanging out the last couple of days.
2. Seahawks fans, overall, are very classy and friendly. One of the best fanbases I've encountered. Which is surprising given that they are so close to Oregon, which has probably the trashiest fan base in colleg...

So a former classmate of mine just announced on Facebook that she is now not male or female, but both genders at once and that she should be referred to as "they" from now one.
I'm sorry. If you have a dick, you're male, if not, you're female. End of story....
