Who uses it: Basketball players
What it means: A play in which one member of the team (usually a guard) plants himself in front of a player defending the goal, blocking the defender from getting to the player carrying the ball -- and then rolls around the defender to accept a pass from the ball carrier.
How you can use it: To describe a one-two play toward a goal.
Okay, did you see that game? Did you SEE that game? Any doubts as to whether they show sporting events in Heaven -- and whether my Mom is currently ensconced in Heaven's best sports bar, with a cigarette in one hand and a Gibson on the rocks in the other -- are dispelled completely, now that the Georgetown Hoyas have beaten the #1 team in the country, the Blue Devils of Duke.
On Monday morning, I made two predictions: 1) one of Mom's four unmarried children will be married within the next 12 months, and 2) the Redskins will win next year's Super Bowl. Based on today's performances, I will expand that to predict stellar seasons for all the sports teams Mom followed -- maybe even a pennant for her Cincinnati Reds.
