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 grew up listening to Harry Caray so this ought to be fun. Hit me with number 9 and (for the sake of the Cubs) 23 please.

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!

For the love of Stuart Scott, hit me with 32!

Here you go:

32. This is a bitter pill to swallow

Good luck!

Happy to add to your arsenal. Here you go:

10. That came at an inopportune time

15. This was a confidence booster

Have fun!

This sounds fun! Could I get 13 and 14 please? Thank you!

13. This is just a walk in the park for them now.

14. It wasn't pretty but we'll take it.

Have fun!

Can I have 33, please?
Mar. 27th, 2021 01:32 pm (UTC)
Sure! Here's your prompt:

33. We didn't get the job done.

Happy writing!
Mar. 27th, 2021 07:51 am (UTC)
Maybe this could help spark something, could I get 12 and 21 please?
Mar. 27th, 2021 01:33 pm (UTC)
I hope these will inspire:

12. Time is of the essence

21. We weren't just going to roll over

Have fun!
