Florida keeps on PWNing the rest of america yet again.

Recommended Posts


Florida should be the only state allowed to host the big game B)

I don't know about that... I like when they hold the Super Bowl in San Diego or Pasadena, as well. I despise it being played in domes. Keep it outdoors!

Interestingly enough, ESPN Magazine just had an article this month's issue (p.16) regarding the economic impact of the Super Bowl on host cities. And the last two cities to report data (Tampa in 2001 and Atlanta in 2000) actually lost money in the process. The article was in response to calls to give New Orleans the 2010 Super Bowl to help revitalize the city.

First time I've seen it used on this forum... is there any particular way to pronounce it?

I've heard it pronounced "poon", though I think "pown" would safely get you through those chat rooms filled with the kids & preteens that use it.

Why was a Florida city chosen again in such quick succession?

It's pronounced "OWN". A misprint of the word was found in a computer game years ago and the subculture has adopted it as slang for being better than an opponent.

Yes, that is the first usage of the verb I've witnessed here.

I've been PWN'd here.

But actually, I pretty much figured it was something like that in terms of its etymology.

Actually, I've seen some people put "I pooned [other person]".

I complete believe we are having this discussion here. Thank you bsutter2 for injecting a little youthful culture amongst us.

Oh yeah, congrats Miami.

They edited me?!?!?!!?

I'm sorry buddy! It was my fault. I read the thread and thought you'd made a typo and couldn't correct it, so I went ahead and did it, not understanding the typo was not yours, but one of a historic nature. Sorry for the trouble it caused you.
