Okay so... I’ve been to Penn Relays several times, it’s the best. But in my time as an athlete and coach, one thing about the Relays has never stopped bothering me...
When Penn Relays is abbreviated in conversation or in text... I, and many of my friends say ‘Penn’.
For example: Hey bro, can’t wait to watch the DMR at Penn this year.
However, I know a lot of people that say ‘Penns’ and it kills my soul.
For example: My team is going to Penns this year to run the 4x4.
WHY?! Am I incorrect to assume it’s just plain wrong and stupid to say Penns? It sounds wrong off the tongue!
