Fill In The Blank

by Nick Vitrano

All righty.  Grab a pencil and your thinking caps and let’s play some fill in the blank trivia.  Today’s category: SPORTS CLICHES.

We will accept multiple answers for the first two options.  Only one response will be considered for option #3.  Again, the category is: SPORTS CLICHES.

“It ain’t over __________!”

“Never say _______!”

“Winners never quit _________!”

OK – pencils down.  The correct answers are:

“It ain’t over ‘til it’s over!” and “It ain’t over ‘til the fat lady sings.”

“Never say never!” and “Never say die!”

“Winners never quit and quitters never win!”

Hope is the great allure of sports.  It keeps us coming back despite being faced with the reality that, at the end of the day…the end of the season, the odds are overwhelming stacked against our ultimate contentment.  But there’s always hope, even within the individual game.  In basketball terms, if you’re within 3 as the clock ticks down to nothing, there’s still hope that your final heave will find the nylon and, at worst, force OT.

Enter Green Bay East and today’s WIXX Preps Pick.
