[nsfw] What is the dirtiest sounding sports term you can think of?

Asked by Blondesjon (32053 points ) November 4th, 2012

I’m going with muffed punt. It never fails to crack me up.

I’m looking forward to some non-American answers.

A Hail Mary.

Scrum – it even looks a bit suspicious and gross!

A quote from my favorite TV show comes to mind, “I started off as a tight end but ended up a wide receiver.” :)

Penetration in the backfield. Beat them off the line. He’s going all the way. Fucking Giants. That last one is not an answer to the question. It is just me venting. Damn soft defense.

Damn soft defense.

I understand your consternation. It’s a shame when your “defense”, can’t even catch the dead dude who used to be on 60 Minutes. ;-)

Palming the ball.

My husband told me to put it over on Real Housewives of Miami before the 2 minute warning because, according to him, those women on RHOM can hit harder than the G-Men’s defense. Sad but true. Wussies.

Tight end.

’‘14 Love’ in tennis sounds like an orgy. ‘Drivers’ and ‘Shafts’ in golfing always sounded dirty to me and the fact they carry around ‘ball washers’ around… esh. Tight-end is an obvious one, as is ‘Full Back’. I’m not really into sports though. Having spent most of my time in offices, I always thought ‘double entry accounting’ sounded much dirtier than any sports term.

@cazzie – 14 love is a very interesting tennis score????

gailcalled's avatar

^^ I was just brooding about this. Wouldn’t Love-15; Love -30 and Love-40 be more accurate?

You can look this up to be true… Pineridge Middle School in Deltona Florida. Every game the kids chant “PMS! PMS!” Good times.

rooeytoo's avatar

@gailcalled – yes or it could go to 7 love in a tie break, but I can’t think of an instance of the score ever being 14 love???

gailcalled's avatar

@rooeytoo: Neither could I, but my thinking can be muzzy sometimes these days.

I forgot the converrse; 15-love, 30-love, and 40-love.

Golf has this sewn up, any reference to teabagging….sinking balls in holes, is good enough for me.

“touching ball” in Snooker.

Apart from some of the very odd terms used in AFL (Australian Football League), Roy and HG calling the Men’s Gymnastics is very special. Hello boys… and now crazy date and into the corner with a flattened bag. For the initiated, a date is an anus.

And the Synchronized Swimming – beggars belief.

Best commentary I heard was in the Euro 96 football tournament held here in england town.
England were playing the germans (spits on floor) in the semi final, when Stefan Kuntz (germanic player) scored an equaliser past David Seaman (english goalkeeper)
“Seaman goes in on Kuntz!” Loved your work man, nice job.

There’s the famous cricket commentary: “The batsman’s Holding the bowler’s Willie!” (Okay, not very NSFW, but cutely rude!)

ucme's avatar

Yeah, Michael Holding & Peter Willey, West Indies v England.

cazzie's avatar

you guys who found ‘fault’ in my tennis score really didn’t get it. I am not into sports.

rooeytoo's avatar

So you answered incorrectly on purpose because you’re not into sports. Makes sense to me (yeah right?????)

@cazzie Still trying to figure out 14 love. Tie breakers go to 7 Love. How does 14 Love figure in?

cazzie's avatar

It Doesn’t! It is a completely made up score because I have no idea about sports and care even less about them to look up what would be the right thing to write, see?

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@cazzie Ah, makes more sense now.

cazzie's avatar

Do I have to explain why I find ‘double entry accounting’ funny too? Hummmmm? @rooeytoo ??

rooeytoo's avatar

When I use caffeine I prefer it cold and bubbly as in CocaCola, I do not drink coffee. And I don’t get the connection between double entry accounting, which is a time honored and precise bookkeeping process, to an erroneous and impossible tennis score????

cazzie's avatar

she doesn’t get it giggles

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@cazzie There are two possibilities. Credits could be ins, debits out, or it could be one girl, two guys. With the two guys 14 love becomes a possible score.
