Re: Sport's Quote's
This shit has been bugging me all night/morning, so I'm going to address it before I go to sleep.
Apostrophes (not apostrophe's, in this case):
They are used to indicate possession:
Tony's mad English skillz, yo; the original poster's lack of understanding for apostrophes; the grammar Nazi's duty to point out every little mistake
They are not, however, used on possessive pronouns:
yours, his, hers, theirs, its, ours
They are used in contractions:
They're (they are, not to be confused with their or there), can't (cannot), don't (do not), won't (will not), wouldn't (would not), couldn't (could not), I'm (I am), you're (you are, not to be confused with your), he's/she's (he/she is), it's (it is, not to be confused with the possessive pronoun its), ain't (whatever the fuck ain't would be if it were spelled out all the way), and so on and so forth.
They are not used to indicate plurals:
Many sports, not sport's unless we're talking about something that belongs to a sport;
quotes, not quote's unless we're talking about something that belongs to a quote;
assholes, not asshole's unless we're talking about something that belongs to an asshole;
and so on and so forth...
There, I feel better.
