So… why is a not even remotely famous biking / husband / dad / high tech worker writing about buffalo?

Mostly because of this grantland.com article I ran into yesterday and its associated scholarly reference.

I sent Julie a text message that basically said ‘Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo’ without much explanation and then pretty much forgot about it for the rest of the day. When I casually mentioned it to her that evening a lot of hilarity ensued around the subjects ‘am I a total loon?’, ‘I’m going to ask the kids about this ’cause I think you’re nuts’, etc. Amazingly, son Michael (see, that English degree is paying off) had heard of this, although we have a slight difference of opinion as to whether or not it’s 9 or 10 buffalo (note, I’m going with Prof. Rapaport, sorry Michael).

So, if you want to be mildly amused, read the scholarly reference – isn’t the English language an amazing beast?
