Badmitten was an awesome band.
I remember seeing Chinese guys at the gym in college playing badminton all of the time. If only they had table tennis there.
For years I thought it was Badmington. Gotta love regional accents ...
It's that pesky nasal stop. Same reason people say "Clih-un" for Clinton.
I'm going to have to stop subscribing to SLOG if you keep insisting on posting shit like this. You all already average 33 items / day, which is too many. Random spelling insights are a waste of bytes.
Whoa. You just blew my mind!
Easy on Megan, Seinfeld made a billion dollars with these types of insights. Has anyone seen the film "I just want someone to eat cheese with", and isn't that basically a Seinfeld episode set in Chicago? It's Jeff from Curb Your Enthusiasm with Larry David, but still I thought he'd stretch it a little. Sexual interest from Sarah Silverman seems like a stretch but otherwise?
WHAT!?!? With this crowd and no shuttlecock jokes? I'm disappointed in you all.
"Easy on Megan"? Never. She likes to throw the word "retardedly" around like it's perfectly acceptable language for a so-called writer to use on a blog. I want to be sure her name is forever linked with that word so that she'll be a $9-an-hour wage slave for the rest of her life.
I don't breath when the shuttlecock is in the air. Thankfully this is not long.
Yeah megan. Retarded is not acceptable. Its borderline faggot to us social worker types, and anyone with a handicapped relative. So cut that fuckin shit out. Makes you sound real dumb...See better than the R word. However, Badminton is awesome, I played last weekend. I couldn't even serve to those guys. TB, if I were you I would quit reading , or get used to it, cause SLOG ain't changin!
Do you know that the shuttlecock is the fastest-moving object in all of sports? It's been clocked at over 200 mph!
Is this an Olympic sport like ping pong and curling?
sweet video, and i'm pretty sure the shuttlecock is not the fastest sports object. I'm pretty sure that Both golfballs and jai alai balls are known to be faster.
Negative @13. There IS no Olympic sport like Curling.
I'm dead serious.
# 14 --
just double-checked and, while badminton's bird has been clocked at 180 mph, jai-alai has been clocked at 188 mph.
but i'm pretty sure one of these days, an olympian will smash that record.
Good thing it slows down to 2mph by the time it gets to the other side.
By falling silent simultaneously, all thought in unison that the guy's dogs who was walking his dogs were at the point of attacking all of us.
Pot cookie minton.
Natalie Merchant is the worst mitten Charles Mudede's ever been smitten with.
