My business writing class has six UT football players in it, including quarterback Nathan Peterman if there are any Vol fans in here. The professor is a huge football fan and loves talking to the players. Just a few minutes ago he asked them which pro football team they'd like to play for if they had the choice. Without hesitation, all six of them said Carolina. I immediately quipped up and asked them why. They said that Ron is a players' coach and he is well regarded by college players across the nation; that the team has great facilities; Charlotte is a nice city; and the organization is very player-friendly.
Not making this up. Guess we have that going for us
Business writing, eh? "Quipped" isn't the word you're looking for there.
