Hey sportscaster!

"Once referred to as a living legend, Burke will now be immortalized forever..." Katherine Dolan of TSN.

Hey Katherine Dolan! When you say someone will be immortalized, you don't need to add forever, it's redundant. Once someone is immortal (literally immune to death), it's forever. If not, they are not immortal.

Just saying.

immortalize, immortalise [ɪˈmɔːtəˌlaɪz]
vb (tr)
1. to give everlasting fame to, as by treating in a literary work Macbeth was immortalized by Shakespeare
2. to give immortality to
