blue
 n.— «Not long after he became a figure in Memphis—a putatively rich businessman who had his own jet and was the radio voice of the Memphis Grizzlies—he had feelers from the Memphis Country Club. He didn’t encourage them because, as he puts it: “I don’t hang with the blues. I’d rather go to a high-school football game on Friday night than go to a country club and drink four Scotches and complain about my wife.”» —“For N.F.L., Crowd Noise Has Become a Headache” by John Branch New York Times Sept. 24, 2006.
