The Word According to Miller

September 11, 2000

With comedian Dennis Miller's arrival, "Monday Night Football" has begun speaking another language. So we begin a weekly listing of words and references that sailed over our head during the past Monday's game:

Preternatural: Beyond what is normally found or expected. Orioles make playoffs, for example.

Christo: Modern artist who wrapped an entire island in pink fabric. Reason: unknown.

Romulus and Remus: Twin brothers raised by a she-wolf and founders of the city of Rome. Not a Fox sitcom.
