Question for the Community From a Reader:
I am the founder of a racquetball club at work.  Yes, that’s the sport referred to by Ms. Baumbach as ‘fast, sweaty, and a bit proletarian.’  Anyway, I am considering giving my club members custom T-shirts.  I would like the design to have crossed racquets and our initials, but I am unsure of the sequence.  The initials are ABRC.  Would it be:
