I am amused by what I suppose is a writer's careless editing of his
own sentence that brings AAVE to the sports pages of the Boston Globe
(and I don't mean in quotations).  The "Sports Log" column, speaking
of Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin's season-ending knee injury,
says "An MRI done revealed that Griffin has 'an isolated tear' in his
anterior cruciate ligament."
