We’re talking sports this week. What have boxing, horse racing and dart throwing done for the English language? Featuring Gyles meeting the Beckhams, the real Real McCoy, the origin of starting from scratch, stinging like a butterfly, a turn up for the books, a dead ringer, winning hands down, the Canterbury Gallop, the mystery of the oche, the bunghole, “Glenn Hoddle’s onslaught on English as we know it”, slugging someone, scarpering, haddaway and shite. A Somethin’ Else Production. Susie’s Trio of Words:Engouement: an irrational fondness for something.Gove: to stare stupidly. Noggle: achieving something with difficulty.
