35 Football Phrases That Sounded Dirty To Me…

The football season is basically over for me. The University of Georgia was a good five yards from playing for the national title, but we won our bowl game. And the Vikings are now out of the playoffs having been crushed by the Packers while Christian Ponder was out. The time around New Years is always my favorite football time of the year. I end up watching a lot of football. It’s the best time of the year to see teams from different conferences play each other who normally maybe don’t. And it’s the time of the year that the sportscasters are so busy at work, they don’t really think about what they say before they say it sometimes. Football is always full of terms that sound dirty given the right circumstance, but Bowl season is the best time of the year. And this year, I wrote some down. So here’s my list of 30 football sayings that sounded dirty (and maybe they are or maybe they aren’t!) in no particular order:

  1. “He trusts his own skills so much, sometimes he tries to squeeze it into too tight a spot”
  2. “Just shove it right in that seam”
