Idioms are phrases frequently used by native speakers. This baggage of words is now part of everyday communication, as is often the case with the sport. Sport is a popular subject for many people and often speech becomes part of the language, such as at work or in everyday life. Today's topic is to talk about some of the ways of saying that we usually use in daily conversations and that can relate to sport.
It could be write a whole volume on the sport idioms in which one could give an account of ways of saying, technicalities, neologisms, loans from other disciplines, daring war metaphors or the most harmless metonymies, to arrive at the epithets (the Phenomenon for Ronaldo or the Pupone for Totti), the hyperbols and the foreigners (the sport itself is an anglicism with French origin) that have characterised it for decades now.
