Default The Most overused Cliches or phrases you hear in Sports (preferably basketball)

So what are some of the most overused phrases in sports that annoy you?

I'll start off with some obvious ones: "My bad", "we played hard as a team", "it was just unfortunate".

the most overused one is "we just have to give it 100%" sometimes 100 is supstituted with 110.

I get irritated at lots, but here's one, when asked about contract extentions or resigning;

"Oh I don't read the papers, all I know is that I am a ______, I love being a _______, and I don't even think about anything like that until the end of the year. I love the city, and the fans have been good to me, I can't think about anything but being a ______ right now and trying to win a championship for this franchise!!!"

Oh blow it out your asses you lyin sonnamabeetchs!
