There's another thing that annoys me, though it may not necessarily be grammar. If you watch football, you may hear it multiple times a day from various announcers. "He's as good as any in football." This is used to explain how great a player may be playing. Either they are saying he's not that great, or they are elevating everyone else to his level. Do they not realize that is not a compliment?
I think that just means he's at least as good as any other player. So no one is better. Yeah?
