Multiple exasperated accounts out of Rockford, Illinois indicate that David Mandelay, 43-year-old father of two, has spent the last week and a half referring to everyone exclusively as, “sport,” much to his family and friends’ irritation.
“At first it was kind of funny when he was like, ‘Don’t forget to put out the garbage, sport,'” his 14-year-old son Derek told reporters. “But he’s literally called me that like three dozen times now. It’s really annoying.”
Among other people that Mandelay has casually referenced using this nickname are his boss, two cashiers at a nearby grocery store and, perhaps most distressingly, his own wife.
