For me, this old adage has always screamed for further interpretation.
It’s confusing, don’t you think?.
Not even the most knowledgeable fan can fully explain the meaning.
The sports expression about the team “knocking at the door” begs me to ask.
Just how close in a game do you need to be to knock at the door?
If you get a five run lead, can you still knock?
Are only baseball teams allowed to knock?
Also, can only offensive teams knock?
And, when a defender knocks back, does he answer the door or answer the bell?
Someone needs to take some initiative and clarify this old sports cliché because it continues to confuse the heck out of all of us.
