Every sports fan has had that awkward moment while watching or listening to their favorite team. You know, when the announcer says something that sounds really dirty, but he's actually just describing the action that's unfolding. Yeah, those moments.
Here are 15 sports phrases that sound dirty as all get out, but they're really not at all:
"Those guys have been banging down low all game long."
"He almost broke through, but he was unable to penetrate the defense."
"Wow! What a block! He just got stuffed."
Most guys would welcome a rear naked choke from Ronda Rousey.
"He can't miss! He's just stroking it right now."
"He came inside on the 0-2 and Rodriguez made him pay for it."
This joke wrote itself after Danica won the pole at Daytona in 2013.
"He really took one on the chin there."
In real life, illegal touching will land you in jail. In the NFL, it's just a penalty.
"Welker lines up in the slot."
"He's really been taking a pounding over the last two rounds."
Hooker is an actual position in Rugby. It's true, it's true.
"He looks tired out there. He really needs a blow."
"Oh! Bryant with the facial!"
This phrase is constantly yelled by d-dags at golf events across the country every week.
