Think you know your sports cliches? Take this 20-question challenge to see if you've got what it takes. This is one of those fill-in-the-blank tests, so you'll need pencil and paper. Simply provide one word that best completes the sentence to make a sports cliche. Some are easy, some a bit harder, but that's how we separate the real sports fans from the wannabes. And just in case you've forgotten how to do these tests, here's a sample question:
Sample question: He always gives 110 ______. The answer is, of course, percent. So you'd write percent on your answer sheet. Got it? OK, put on your thinking cap (and remember it's a bit Ameri-centric) and let's go!

Answers and grades will be issued later.

1) You can feel the ______ swinging.
2) You can't stop him, you can only hope to ______ him.
3) They have to take it one game at a ______.
4) He's really coming into his ______.
5) Records are made to be ______.
6) He's really been in the ______.
7) The players have bought into the ______.
8) This team must ______ to the occasion.
9) He always comes through in the ______.
10) They have to ignore the off-field ______.
11) They have to stay ______.
12) He thrives under ______.
13) This team must step up to the next ______.
14) This team has tremendous mental ______.
15) They have to turn up the ______.
16) They need a win to ______ off elimination.
17) This team has overcome a lot of ______.
18) They control their own ______.
19) This team sent a ______ today.
20) This win was a ______ team effort.

HMMM well let's see, your almost in the ballpark with "Fart", but not quite. Which number were you trying to answer???

AND what in the heck does this mean "...I claim ny bottle of Binters" ????? Is that some kind of neo-pseudo-Dada slang????

Nevertheless, I'm a strong believer in the Fart as a means of expression.

Piss you got 10 correct, which, I must say is okay for an antipodean, as this is primarily an Ameri-centric thing. Anyway here is the grading scale.

Less than 12 correct: Pretty clueless. Your primary exposure to sports cliches is the Sunday morning political talk shows.

12-13 correct: You're obviously not much of a sports fan. You only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials.

14-15 correct: You know enough not to embarrass yourself in a Monday morning conversation, but you hit the TV mute button whenever you hear Dick Vitale.

16-17 correct: You're a casual sports fan, often guilty of channel surfing at halftime.

18-19 correct: You spend most of the weekend in front of the television. You listen to sports radio exclusively when in your car. You like starting the argument that golfers are athletes.

20 correct: Hardcore. You need to get off the couch and out of the house!
