Athlete's names can also be translated into everyday catch-phrases. Ocean's 13 offered us the "Billy Martin."
Some other examples:
Earnest Byner: For use when one of your buddies really drops the ball. Ex: "You forgot your ID to get in? Nice one Byner!"
Pulling a Norman: For use with an extreme choke job. Ex: "Those '07 Mets really pulled a Norman this year."
Don Mattingly: We love Donnie Baseball, but watch where you go fellas when nature calls. Ex: "Hey keep an eye out for me, I really have to go but I don't want to do a Mattingly." Note: not to be confused with the much more serious "Gary Miller."
With that in mind, T3I offers up these possibilities:
- "Man did the pilot in that plane crash pull a GROB or what?"
- "I have no idea what that professor's lecture was about. He talked totally GROB."
The Daryl Gross
- "Nepotism, schmepotism. I've got the perfect plan, I'm just going to pull a Daryl Gross and hire my girlfriend anyways."
- "The mechanic keeps saying that funny sound in the engine will get better.....somehow I think he's trying to Gross me."
