    I think it's intentional. Not because its cute but because someone probably pointed it out and instead of admitting they made a mistake they just stuck with it.

    or maybe he thought this was the correct spelling all along?

    "Our head coach has failed to win a playoff game for seven years in a row. His game day strategy, culture of divas, in game decisions, clock management, player evaluation, hires, and affinity with sub par starters at RB, P, and OL are holding the Steelers back. That standard remains the standard"

    Google searches
    People google cutsie WAY more than cutesy. Take a look at this Google Trends chart:

    cutsie dominates google trends

    Cutesie doesn’t even register on the searches.

    When we turn to books, the results become very interesting.

    Books
    Cutesie vs cutsie in books

    Cutesie in books:
    Cutesie started appearing in books in about 1960. Then in 1970, cutesie hit the sharp upward trend and started appearing in books much more. Cutesie hit its peak in 1976.

    Cutsie in books:
    Cutsie lagged behind six years by making it’s first appearance in books in 1966. In 1976, it also experienced a spike upward, six years after cutesie’s spike.

    Today cutsie appears in more books than cutesie. In fact, cutsie had its height in 2004.

    cutesy use in books

    Cutesy in books:
    Compare cutesy against our other two words, and it totally demolishes them in appearances. Cutesy had its start in 1939, and rose up quickly in the mid 1960s. The peak of all cutesy was in 2003. Since then, cutesy has started to wane.

    Etymology
    Cutesie, cutsie are not in the etymology dictionary. But cutsey is:

    “artificially or annoyingly cute,” by 1968, from cute (adj.).

    It makes sense that cutsey comes from the word cute. What is the origin of cute? Etymonline says:

    1731, “clever,” shortening of acute; informal sense of “pretty” is 1834, American English student slang. Related: Cuteness.

    The pretty part makes sense. Even the clever part. When someone is being a smartbutt, you say, “stop being so cute.” But the shortening of acute is rather interesting. So “cute” actually comes from the word “acute.” What is the origin of acute?

    acute (adj.)Look up acute at Dictionary.comlate 14c., originally of fevers and diseases, “coming and going quickly” (opposed to a chronic), from Latin acutus “sharp, pointed,” figuratively “shrill, penetrating; intelligent, cunning,” past participle of acuere“sharpen” (see acuity). Meaning “sharp, irritating” is from early 15c. Meaning “intense” is from 1727. Related: Acutely; acuteness.


    Wow, trace back the word “cute” and it comes from fevers and diseases. Something that is sharp and pointed. That does NOT sound cute at all. Unless if you are talking about baby porcupines.

    But even then, their quills are much less sharp when they are young.

    Urbandictionary
    Anytime you are speaking of words, of course, you have to head to urbandictionary for their tongue-in-cheek definitions.

    Cutesy rocks the top. Cutsie and cutesie are pretty much in a dead tie. Cutezee is nearly non-existent.

    Summary for usage
    Cutesy ranks #1. Cutsie is #2. Cutesie is #3. I find it odd that cutsie is #2, because it seems like a typo.

    Good, now look up "nepotism" and "failure" and we will be getting somewhere. And make sure Cool Shades sees it. But in the backwoods, deer-hunting western PA, I don't think it matters.

    And yet, Cool Shades keeps drafting/adding players who are brothers...now, gee, I wonder why? All just a coincidence?

    Hmmmmm. I thought they were all brothers since that's what they refer to each other on the team.
