Description

Clear the hurdles. Roll with the punches. Batting a thousand. Have you ever heard these crazy expressions? People use them even when they're not running races, facing a prizefighter, or hitting every single pitch. That's because these sayings are idioms--phrases that mean something different from what the words in them actually say. But don't let idioms make you drop the ball. Let's explore a variety of sports-related idioms and figure out what people really mean when they use them.
