GUEST,Cruiser Folklore: Old sayings from childhood (232* d) RE: BS: Old sayings from childhood 21 Sep 03


Not being a "star" football player, my high school coach had a saying for players like me that frequently missed assignments: "Son, quit standing there with one hand up your a** and the other one in you mouth waitin' for someone to hollar switch".

Aw, the good ol' early '60's, before PC, when coaches could kick you in the rear and berate you in an attempt to make you a better player and person. BTW, sometimes I lettered in sports and sometimes I did not make it, but nothing was given to you just to assuage your hurt feeling. Two other saying when you screwed up on the field:

"Go to the house!" (meaning "hit the showers", you were through for the day).
