Yes. Guess I could have cleared that up. My bad. Or are we not supposed to use gender anymore?
if the baseball team makes a regional would you say the following: Gentlemen deserve a nice sendoff? Have you ever seen our baseball team referred to as gentlemen which is the masculine version of ladies?
Why not say: Our softball team deserves a nice sendoff?
I've heard some female athletes mention not liking phrases like "the girls team" such as "the girls basketball tournament" while making a point that the men's is almost always referred to as "the men's tournament." I've never seen anyone complain about "ladies" being used though, but it's possible. It's one of those situations where I say to look towards the intent of what someone is saying, but it is what it is.
Re: Tough deal on the site of the regional. Thought they deserved to host.

Yeah, looking at the top 16 seeds I am surprised we are not hosting. Even more surprised that we are in a bracket with the #3 seed. I find it hard to believe that if we weren't a top 16 we should have been close. Meaning a match up against a team seeded in the teens... Best remedy is to win the region. Go Tigers!
