Our idioms come from our histories, our conditions, our culture and our activities. In North America, we have a lot of drinking idioms, horses and guns idioms, weather idioms and, what I am sharing this week, sports idioms. Sometimes, if you know how to play the game, you can figure out the meaning. Here are today’s three sports idioms:

  • The ball is in your court
  • Get the ball rolling
  • Call the shots

Please share other idioms you use and find useful to get a clear message across in few words.
