SPORTS CLICHE: | A site dedicated to sports cliches. All athletes are required to read the list and remember it by heart, so that their words can become effectively meaningless. In this regard, Rasheed Wallace is my hero for subversively exposing the meaninglessness of post-game interviews.

Superb. On a scale of 1 to 10, it's an 11. A top performer. To infinity and beyond! btw, where's the soccer cliches? FB? squealy?

A gem: Announcers often mix sports cliches, as Chris Berman did when analyzing how the Philadelphia Eagles won their wildcard playoff game (January 12, 2002; ABC-TV): "They smelled the jugular."

Ta, squealy. Thanks for turning on a sixpence and creating a goal out of nothing. You're a regular utility player, my defensive rock.

"They smelled the jugular." Oh, when will somebody fulfill my lifelong quest for an air freshener that smells of vein?

darn, i was hoping the comments would start with SpoFi comment cliches. If there is such a thing. I'm just taking this one posting at a time.

I'm going to leave it all on the message board. I'd like to thank the Spofi Pantheon for allowing me the oppurtunity to post.

SportsFilter: It's a team game

It's a game of two halves. In the third, cliches gone awry usually come to the fore.
