    When I was a little kid and heard that word I thought it was "pre-Madonna" which I took to meaning literally before Madonna was around. I never understood it but hey, whatever. Apparently I'm not the only one, I saw someone on Reddit posted the same thing
    I thought that when I was a kid too. It never made literal sense to me though, so I thought it was some kind of slang, one day I got curious and looked it up on the internet only to find what what was actually being said.

    I've been under the impression that the dominate vs dominant thing was a running joke here on PD. Didn't UB start it?

    It's a running joke, but because it's done so much. I'd say at least 75 percent of its use here is for real, and 25 percent sarcastic.

The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown

    I thought I had seen this on here a lot. Apparently I see it more than I thought. A search for "paid" turns up 4 pages worth of results. A search for "payed" turns up 7 pages.
