Subject: Re: "my bad"
I have been playing pickup basketball since 1945, and I had never heard
the expression "my bad" until the early eighties. When I first heard it,
I thought it really seemed like a strange expression, but I discovered
that I soon was using the expression myself on the basketball court--
routinely. "My mistake" and "my fault" seem too formal now. Like
Melissa, I don't use it in other places. Oh, by the way, I have never
heard it used after a foul, only after some other kind of mistake.
