Home run with a baseball – Going “Yard.”
Touchdown with a football – taking it (the “rock”) to the “house.”
A couple questions
- Where are the picket fences, the riding mower, the crabgrass, the garage. the crazy aunt in the basement – in these sports metaphors?
- If I go the the “Yard House” for beers, am I going to be hit by someone’s balls? Am I going to be scored upon?
