Default Let's Play a Sports Word Game

Okay, I made up this little game that entails coming up with clever puns about sports figures. Rather than explain it, I'll offer three examples:

If Andrew Luck went to Notre Dame he would be...Luck of the Irish.

If Cy Young went to the bullpen he would be...a Cy of relief.

If Justin Smoak went water-skiing, he would be...Smoak on the water.

See, isn't that fun and easy? Come up with a few of your own, and amaze your friends!

Back in the fifties a sixth inning rain out gave the Indians an early win.

Thank you all.


All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Only 37.10% crazy based on recent polling data, but still a weird dude.

That's a variation of the game but perfectly acceptable.

If Mickey Mantle wore a toupee, it would be...a Mantle piece.

If Frank White hit a bloop fly to a fielder, it would be....wait for it.....a White Out!

See what I did!!!!

Adding to the uniqueness of the pun, Frank White is an African American!

Clever and topical at the same time.

Default A rule breaker variation ?

If young Ralph fell in Charlotte,

there wouldn’t be a finer shiner on a minor Kiner in Carolina.

If Stan the Man ordered new dining table seating, the order would be tagged as Musial ( musical ) Chairs.

I believe you and I are the only ones playing Doc.

And if either Sam or Jim were playing in the mid 60's, there might exist a Rice Peel-off
