    Besides, we all know boxers can't fight on the ground.

    Dude comes. Punch, kick, punch.

    Walks, then gets owned on TV.

    Poetic justice.

    Nah, I was just being a pedantic twat. Pedantic, yet wrong.

    I've check with my English Language major girlfriend an her verdict is that owned is a tricky, not clear cut word, when it come to the old syllable counting. However, from a practical view point she says it counts as one, and who am I to argue?
