Creative spellings, or, they're called the Old 97's!

Part of what has been awesome about the many hits coming into the Champaign, Illinois that I wrote a few months ago has been the many creative spellings of "Champaign" (and a few creative "Illinois" spellings).

Until I saw this:

Yeah. This blows creative spellings of Champaign, Illinois right out of the water. The search words are "according to the old ninetysixers, is champaign ill bad"...

The band is called Old 97's. Really, really close. One number off.  I've also never seen anyone spell out "ninety-sevens" before when referring to them.  Named after the Johnny Cash song, Wreck of the Old 97.

Anyway...did you know there are people using Bing now? Yeah, me neither.
