Bleacher Report Illustrates a Few Sports Cliches

By Richard Horgan Comment

Here’s some well done summer fun.

In partnership with New York-based illustrator Henry Kaye, Sports Bleacher compiled cartoon reminders of some of the sayings we hear repeated far too often by athletes and journalists covering sports events.

The article, bylined as having been written by Social Media Staff and Correspondent, doesn’t do quite the job it should have in terms of picking the best 15 cliches. But the drawings by Kaye more than make up for that:


We were a little surprised to see LeBron James dragged into the illustration touching on flopping and theatrically enhanced reaches for NBA foul calls. Mainly because he’s far from the top of the list in that regard.
