Here’s a doozy of a sentence from a nytimes article on “finding a candidate you’d like to have a beer with”:
And last year as her poll numbers were fading, Senator Mary L. Landrieu of Louisiana attended a keg stand outside of a sporting event in Baton Rouge.
I have never in my life heard someone use any variation of the verb “attend” in connection with a keg stand. A keg stand is something you do; it’s not something you attend. And why write “sporting event”? Ten seconds of googling reveals that it was an LSU football game. Just say that.
