Crash Davis: It's time to work on your interviews.
Ebby Calvin LaLoosh: My interviews? What do I gotta do?
Crash Davis: You're gonna have to learn your clichés. You're gonna have to study them, you're gonna have to know them. They're your friends. Write this down: "We gotta play it one day at a time."
Ebby Calvin LaLoosh: Got to play... it's pretty boring.
Crash Davis: 'Course it's boring, that's the point. Write it down.

Re: Top 11 Sports Cliches of All Time

i missed a few

1. I guessed hold knowing it was probably wrong. I guess contain is pretty close to that.

6. I said hummble. Focused. I think it can be a lot of things

11. I said great. I guess total makes more sense.

Nice thread.
