The Top(Bottom) 10 Worst Sports Cliches

The following sports cliches need to be retired. These are the sports cliches that are going out like Michael Jordan, Brett Farve, Willy Mays and countless other big time athletes that stayed past their prime. They are used by old time baseball announcers, smug ESPN hosts and stupid athletes alike.

10. Describing someone as a “team player.” By definition everyone on the team is a team player.

9. Defense wins championships (honorable mention – the best defense is a good offense). Sooooo, being proficient in 50% of a sport is important? Duh!

8. Any time a basic sports term is used in another sport by the announcers. Saying something was a home run play in football…or a slam dunk…its usually baseball terms being used in other sports. Step up to the plate; they wanna play hardball;

7. It was a gutsy performance, he was brave, she was courageous. A solider is courageous. A fireman is brave. A doctor is gutsy… not a guy running fast carrying something.

6. Shock the world. Really.

5. At the end of the day. Its usually used to poorly segue from one thought to another. I don’t like it.

4. He came to play. Is there any other reason?

3. Giving 110%. Other then being impossible, its a terrible cliche.

2. We are just taking it one day at a time (one inning at a time, one shift at a time, one play at a time). Another

1. Anything relating to God being the reason someone either performed well or a team won. C’mon, so God play favorites not only with sports teams, but with individual performances on sports teams. These people are all idiots…besides, we all know God is a Devils fan!
