should it be the boys and girls or the boys and the girls and should there be a comma after side? what about a comma after on any given sunday?

**SraJMcGin**, Friday, December 21, 2007 at 2:41pmSince the noun side is modified, "boys'" and "girls'" and not a comma but a semicolon to avoid a run-on sentence = "side; it is unbelievable."

**Writeacher**, Friday, December 21, 2007 at 3:31pmWell, I disagree a bit.

There does need to be a comma after "side" because the clause following is a result clause: "There are so many ... [that] it is unbelievable."

Also -- I really think you need to make it "sides" not "side" since I take it you mean that the girls and the boys sit on different sides, right?

There should be a comma after "Sunday" and a comma after the closing parentheses after "etc."

Let us know if you have further questions.
