So for my inaugural attempt at the SS, we will have something very near and dear to all of our hearts.
The sports cliche.
You can't watch a game without hearing one, or even hearing someone trying to make up a new one.
They're ubiquitous. They're also kind of ridiculous. Many apply universally.
My favorite one: "Both teams played hard."
You hope to see this every game, but sometimes it just bears noting. At other times, it's used as a qualifier to make it ok that you just saw something awful.
So put down your favorite/least favorite sports cliche. For bonus points, give an announcer who uses it the best.
