We Remember the Titans

This made our heart stop for two reasons:

Rams sign Denzel Washington's son


ST. LOUIS -- Signing the son of actor Denzel Washington on Monday ensured the St. Louis Rams of making a splash the day after the NFL draft ended.

John David Washington, a 5-foot-10, 200-pound running back, was among 10 undrafted players signed by the Rams. He played for Division II Morehouse College last year.

Reason No. 1: Parenthetic expressions must be fully enclosed in commas. Leaving off the second, as R.B. Fallstrom did, is grammatically akin to leaving the house with unzipped pants. Close, but no cigar (or too much, if one is "traveling commando").

Reason No. 2: Denzel Washington! Denzel Washington!
