    Wouldn't that be "Deuces Wild"?

    And I think there's a debate over whether it's "twi-night doubleheader" or "twilight doubleheader."

    They don't seem to make as many "dog" references in regard to blitzes as they used to.

    Grew up to Vin saying that. But I could never tell if he was saying "Deuce is wild or deuces wild" ...

    About to say ...

    And when I played ball -- I ain't that old -- somebody in the dugout would mention "deuces wild" every time it was a 2-2 count with 2 outs.

    Many,many years ago I covered some minor league games with a guy who invariably referred to runners at first and third as "ducks on the pond."

    A lazy infield popup was a "can of corn."

    I hear people in all walks say those phrases at every game.

    I just read duck hunters refered to as "nimrods." I'm stealing that one.
