Tennis Channel's Back-slash

Guys, have you been watching Anastasia of Yoga for Tennis? When she gives out a website address, she refers to "slash" (/) as "back-slash". A "back-slash" is this: (\).

Then, I saw a segment featuring Bud Collins on the history of tennis, and he likewise referred to the "slash" as a "back-slash".

I know this is pretty minor, but I was hoping somebody else noticed it too. lol...

Ha. I correct her every time the commercial comes on. It bugs the hell out of the people I'm watching with.

By the way, my brother thinks Anastasia's Yoga for Tennis is the Tennis Channel's version of porn.

Re: Tennis Channel's Back-slash

I thought yours was a typo in the thread title and you were going to inform us about a backlash against TTC.

Finally!!! Hahaha... The funny thing is that the "slash" is more common than the "back-slash". So, when they used "back-slash", they probably think they're being smart or something. Hahaha...

Agree on the porn. Aside from the sexy outfit and poses, it's probably her sexy accent.
