Go the Semicolons!

They’re not just a good idea; they’re grammatically correct!

PS: the title of this post is a bit of an in-joke…hello to those of you who get it.

    It haveth naught to do with semicolons. On the Robyn Hitchcock mailing list, there was a discussion of the way British (and ex-British colonial) sports fans will include the article in referring to the teams. I can’t remember the explanation exactly – something about distinguishing between the group of individuals making up the team and the team itself – but apparently it’s common enough to hear things like “Go the Gunners!” So after that discussion, nearly any plural noun is subject to such formation.
