Emphasis on the off

I find it funny that when we’re talking about sports we say OFFense, but when we’re in everyday conversation we say uh-fense. Nobody would ever say, “No OFFense, but I didn’t care for the cake.”

The English language is weird…

  1. I don’t think anyone would say they didn’t care for the cake in general, it’s cake you’re talking about.

    I second your opinion. The English language is definitely weird.
