Thankfully ...

My uncle is a writer, so he can clue me in when I make rookies mistakes. 

The correction:
In Case You Missed Them ...



... like I did yesterday.


FYI, that should be as I said. I can't give you the explanation or the terms for using as rather that like in that situation because I don't remember them, but as I can say is you use as when it comes before a verb phrase, e.g., as I said or as I told my father. I hear it all the time in the media,"Like I said..." and it drives me nuts. You use like when you are comparing things, I guess you can said, as in His curve ball was like Gooden's. Something like that.

Many thanks, UP!
