When the word sport is in front of a noun, it usually becomes a noun phrase. So the two words kind of combine to be like one noun phrase. So we use sports not sport in those sort of situations. Let's look at the first example with the X. This of course would be wrong. If we say Jerry owns a sport car. No. With the check this is correct We say Jerry owns a sports car . Yeah definitely this will come up in writing. But it even if it's spoken you know, it sounds a little awkward or a little off too. All right . Let's take a look at the second example. Bob likes to go to a sports, a sport bar of course that's wrong with sport bar on the weekend. Of course with the check. This is correct Bob likes to go to a sports bar on the weekends. You know so every weekend he likes to go out to it so we have a lot of these combinations of a sports something. And I just gave you some other very common examples here. So we might not only do we have a you know sports car or sports bar it's very common people might have a sports jacket, sports announcer, you know the people whose are reporting that a baseball game or a basketball game. Sports drink, yeah very common. You know that usually is a little bit of an energy drink or something after you do exercise. Sports coat, sports bra . Yeah , a lot of women have sports bras. Sports fan, very very common, sports arena etc. So again just be careful. Realize when sports is combined together with another noun it becomes a noun phrase. I must always be sports not sport. Okay, I hope it's clear. I hope you got it . Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
