Thank you Tangy

Roddick Tinkers With Scrabble

AP-1 minute ago. Former world number one tennis player, Andy Roddick caused a firestorm amongst recreational and championship level Scrabble players, setting off a fury of e-mails to John D. Williams Jr, Executive Director of the National Scrabble Association, Hasbro who distributes Scrabble (www.hasbro.com) and the National Scrabble Association website (http://www2.scrabble-assoc.com/) causing both sites to crash. The controversy began during Roddick’s prolixic, post match interview, where he claimed that the word “za” was an actual word in his Scrabble Dictionary. “Za, it’s short for pizza. I swear. I promise you. What do you want to bet? In the Scrabble dictionary,” exclaimed Roddick.”
As it turns out, “za” is a new word, just added to the Official Scrabble Dictionary,” explains John Williams Jr. “I’m truly impressed that one of our top American athletes like Andy shares the love of words that we at Scrabble do, and I’m confident that this little misunderstanding will expand the game of Scrabble and American vocabularies.” Mr. William’s message did little to suppress the anger of some of the Scrabble players, like Mario Sandrini, who claimed, “I am very disappointed that I had to get my Scrabble dictionary update from some washed up tennis player. What’s next, the news from NASCAR?” “We were flooded with e-mails of outrage over the new word ‘za,’” says John Williams Jr. One e-mail claimed that he may sue over a lost Scrabble game with his grandmother because he could have used "za" with the “z” on a triple letter space, going vertically and horizontally, resulting in a 62 point word. “While we understand the players’ frustration, it is not the responsibility of the NSA to ensure that everyone has the latest edition of the Official Scrabble Dictionary, which can be purchased for $20.00US at http://www.scrabble-assoc.com/boards...changes.html,” explained John Williams Jr.
One thing is for sure, Andy may not be decimating the competition on court, but he is “k”illing them, “with K on a big word score,” at Scrabble.

Excellent faux article, Robert! I read Word Freak last year and there is no doubt in my mind that real Scrabble pros would respond that way!
