Thread: All-American vs All-America

  1. #1

    Default All-American vs All-America

    I got in a debate about this out there last week. I insist on All-AmericaN. I mean, after all, it's how Sandy introduces them, and Sandy cannot be wrong.

    What does everyone else think?

    Oh, Sandy's been wrong before, but in this case I fully agree.

    Somebody makes All-America, they are an All-American.

    it can be a noun or an adjective:

    Congratulations to All-American ZAPP BRANNIGAN

    or, Zapp made All-American, or Zapp IS an All-American

    I think made All-American is a common misuse of the word.

    Sandy is definitely not wrong when she referred to, on multiple occasions, Missouri's 197, Max Anderson.
