Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows I'm anti-misplaced modifier. I could point out at least one a day if I wanted, but that would be boring. I do want to point this one out, though; it comes from Tennis magazine, which you'd think would be more with it:
"After years of playing and coaching tennis, two facts emerge."
Fact 1: This sentence is incorrect.
Fact 2: This sentence is annoying!
Who wants to rewrite it for me and make me feel better?
