C-J Tom Heiser Fan Blog

Before I discovered this excellent UofL fan blog, I was forced to read the C-J's fan blog.  Recently, I read a reader comment to one of Tom Heiser's posts:

"That's it Heiser; I'm done reading your column. Your use of arcane words is way too annoying and distracting. Either you're very different from how most normal people speak, or you're just trying too hard. Either way, you're not going to build a following, and look forward to see how your replacement does."

booyah!  That post inspired me to make a list of the top 15 arcane words used in a Heiser blog:

15.    inscrutably
14.    quotidian
13.    modicum
12.    dyspeptic
11.    fusillade
10.    diaphanous
9.    obelisks
8.    unblinkered
7.    mellifluous
6.    jamokes
5.    Weltanschauung
4.    opprobrium
3.    bumptiousness
2.    syzygy

and the winner is...
1.    tittles

Who can argue with a guy that works the sentence "it was another signature win -- with all the jots and tittles in place" into a sports column!
