    Not sure if I'm the only one that noticed this or it was on purpose or what but I found a typo.

    It's not really a typo. It's more a slang expression...that someone is going to "go it alone" - meaning that they are going to do it all by themselves.

    BTW - You have too much time on your hands (or you are OCD) if you notice things like this.

    In American English you can definitely "GO it Alone" now go somewhere and do it alone :)

    Lol, yeah, doesn't take much time to notice an error in a sentence. "Go it alone" sounds pretty awkward. I think it should be do. Glad I wasn't the only one who noticed though.

    Lol, if it's that's a slang expression, it must have avoided New York because I've never heard it before.

    It's slang. I live in Chicago and hear it all the time. It is a little cheesy though.

    No typo here. "Go it alone" makes perfect sense, its a pretty common saying.

    either way some people are laughing at that quote(you can't go it alone), you know, the guys with a pathological problem as it pertains to keeping one hand off the joystick down south.
