Today (March 4th) is National Grammar Day! Wait, you’re (not your) not excited? Who doesn’t love grammar?
National Grammar Day started in 2008 as instituted by Martha Brockenbrough, founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar. It is not meant as a day to bash others on their lack of good grammar. March 4th is meant to commend others for what they do well with the English language.
One of the highlights from National Grammar Day is the Grammar Day Haiku Contest. Our haiku celebrates grammar as well. That is Graham-ar, as in former Grizzlies outfielder Tyler Graham. (Nobody said we are good with puns. We will stick to good grammar instead. Tough crowd.). It celebrates Tyler Graham’s record-breaking 60 stolen bases from 2011. The 60 steals are the most ever in a single season by a Grizzlies player in franchise history.
