Daniel wanted to make fun of Stanford, so he sent in this photo:

One of the last places one might expect to find large-type, engraved in bronze apostrophe abuse is Stanford University. But sure enough, there’s this plaque, placed very prominently at the Taube Tennis Center.

…though, that “Row Is of Champions”… 😉

I don’t know where this school is, but I wouldn’t bother going back after vacation, if I were a student who wanted to learn anything about grammar, homophones and apostrophes, at least. I found the sign in a file of photos e-mailed to me by my ever-alert sister, who shares the gene for ferreting out apostrophe and other abuses in the English language.
