The NFL and Spelling

I find this really amusing. You all have seen those cheering fans at football games. The ones where one person holds up a big cardboard "D" and the person next to him holds up a cardboard cutout of a picket fence?

I believe this is the reason why so many people are spelling Defense and Offense incorrectly these days. Although Defense sounds like D-Fence it isn't spelled like that. So when you see the big cardboard "D" and the cardboard cutout of a picket fence, go ahead and yell, "Defense! Defense!"

Offense is also spelled with the 's'....not a 'c.'  

An easy way to remember this is to remember that it makes good sense to write the words as defense and Offense.
