This post will be of interest only to "grammar Nazis" and English majors (like me...).
Yesterday I ran across "citys" as a properly-used word (not a typo for "cities" or "city's.") Ponder for a while under what circumstances that might be appropriate (the photo above is a clue), and no fair Googling. The answer is beneath the fold...
As reported by ESPN:
And finally, a nod to the Minnesota Twins and Atlanta Braves who have each won three straight after both started 0-9. Of all the teams to lose their first nine, only one other squad followed its season-opening streak with three wins. That was the 1871 Rockford (Illinois) Forest Citys, in their only year of existence in the National Association, a league that predates (and is not considered part of) Major League Baseball.The photo comes from a story about the origins of Wisconsin's 1871 Greenbush Dead Citys. Googling "citys" in quotes yields other examples. I know there are several copyeditors who visit this blog; they may be able to cite additional circumstances where the word would be valid.
