Hi again, everybody, thank you, yes, yes, and welcome once again to "That's Not A Word!" We are coming to you live today from the site of the Super Bowl here in lovely Miami, Florida. (Hey, if The Golf Channel gets a media pass, why not TNAW?) But as the camera crews break camp and head back to the freezing East and Midwest, we have found our winner. It is none other than ESPN's own anchor Stuart Scott. A first-time contestant no less - I can't believe it!
I'm the wordexpertest, baby girl.
As Stu assisted in the postgame coverage, he remarked on the rain that enveloped the city throughout the game, that it was "the wettest, the sloppiest, the umbrella-est -- and that IS a word -- Super Bowl ever."
Stuart. We wanted to take you at face value. But you set it up on a tee for us, my friend! You were just trolling for an invitation to TNAW -- and there's no shame in that. So despite your bravado, we've got a dictionary and centuries of history on our side, and we're taking up your white glove. Stuart Scott -- THAT'S NOT A WORD!
Hey, big fella, we know you were kidding. And we know you're a big big shot! But unless we missed a memo, you're still not allowed to invent words. Just because a famous person says it's true, doesn't make it so! But it all worked out in the end, Stu, because now you're our big winner! And we say, let the prize fit the accomplishment! Stu, because you blatantly invent words, we've arranged for you to spend time with some real inventors at monthly meetings of the Inventors Association of Connecticut! Here you will take minutes, fetch coffee, and hobnob with some people who invent real, worthwhile things! The meetings are off of Route 1 at the Westport Bertucci's. Have fun, Stu, and we'll see YOU next time on That's Not A Word!
