    why do people say this? If you're going to quote something then wouldn't you unquote at the conclusion of the quote, not before it? It sounds silly but evidently is acceptable per the mainstream.

    another nonsensical thing people say a lot is "of the world." They do it in sports commentary a lot. As in, "The AJ Greens of the world." Almost always they are referring to just that one player and not a type of player which that one player represents. Mel Kiper is incessant with this: "In the middle first round you have available the Marcus Mariotas of the world"
