We’ve all had the experience, right? You’re sitting there, watching some sporting event on TV, when all of a sudden the announcer says something that just makes you chuckle. Why? Because the thing he happened to say sounded vaguely dirty to you—even though it probably shouldn’t, and you might not want to admit it.
You really shouldn’t be ashamed, though. Pretty much any phrase can be made to sound dirty if you remove it from intended context and say it in just the right way, and this is even more true of sports terms. Moreover, you’re not the only one who hears it. I consider myself to be a pretty mature, responsible adult. I have a mortgage and I pay my taxes. But there’s still a part of me that has the sense of humor of a 15-year-old. And that part thinks it’s hilarious when announcers talk about shafts and balls and finding holes in the defense and whatnot.
Today, therefore, we’re going to count down 50 of the funniest, dirty-sounding terms in sports. Obviously, this endeavor is not for everyone. If you are young and impressionable, easily offended, or do not typically enjoy juvenile humor, you probably shouldn’t read any further. On the other hand, if you need a good (and really stupid) laugh to start the week off right, I think you’d better start clicking those arrows. A bunch of dirty-minded nonsense awaits.
