You didn’t need to watch this year’s NCAA national championship tournament to hear this tirelessly overused basketball cliche.
Sportscasters and fans talking about a visiting team’s win often fall victim to employing the old basketball cliche of an away team leaving its opponents gym with a big “W”.
So, it prompted me to write about it and bring the sophomoric phrase to life in the form of a comic that starts this blog post.
The comic brings new meaning to the old adage about leaving an opponent’s gym with a big “W”.
I can almost hear ESPN’s Dickie V screaming at the highest decibel level about a team’s big “W” or surprise win.
These basketball players are ecstatic over their big win.
They’re also beaming as they transport a giant letter “W” from the Wildcats sign they’ve literally removed from the home team’s gym.
Yup! They’ve left with a big “W” in more ways than one.
