Weekend Challenge - Sports Clichés

Happy Friday! With basketball and hockey winding down (NWHL playoffs start tonight on NBCSN!) and the baseball season less than a week away, I thought it would be the perfect time to bring up some sports clichés- those things that commentators, players, and coaches say during or after every game that are both comfortingly familiar and maddeningly annoying.

I've got a list of 39 of these beauties so give me a number or more than one and I'll toss a prompt your way. If you write 200 words or do some art based on one of these prompts (feel free to drop the "we" and just use the gist of the sentence) by 11:59pm on Thursday, April 1st, I'll write you a drabble or add words to my WIPs.

Have fun and happy writing!

That's great! Always fun when they start running away with you.

Here are your prompts:

7. You can't teach that

28. They wanted it more than we did.

Have fun!

I was lucky enough to hear 3 of the best: Jack Buck (Cardinals), Harry Carey (Cubs), and Vin Scully (Dodgers). Here are your prompts:

9. This could be a turning point

23. It hasn't sunk in yet

Happy writing!
