The fact that you – a reader I respect and try to entertain and inform every day – are reading these words that I have written fills me with more pride than I can put into words. One thing is for sure: don’t look to athletes for guidance on this one.

And the last time I checked – ten seconds ago – pride is an antonym of humility. Am I humbled by your presence or prideful about your presence? Okay, so by the actual definition of the word, your presence here at MSF would have to lower me in dignity or importance for me to be humbled by you being here. My goal with every post is to write something useful, either by being informative or entertaining or both, and for it to be seen by as many people in its target audience as possible.

Thus, the term humbled gets used in places where it doesn’t belong to convey a thought or feeling that isn’t really there.

I should note that I did not choose these examples for any reason in particular.

Let’s try again, this time with another person who has proven to have very flimsy control of the English language: “I try to play as the MVP every time I go out on the court,” [Le Bron] James said.

“If a trophy comes with it, I’m humbled and blessed and will be thankful.

In reference to the quote above, my question for Matt Millen would be: why are you to be part of the NFL Network team?

I can see how Millen might be humbled in the presence of people who are actually competent at their job, someone like Bob Papa, but it makes no sense to say that he is humbled …unless he thinks the team is beneath him.
