Something to listen for

If you've ever watched football on TV (college or pro), you've undoubtedly seen some violent hits. And when a defensive player makes a jarring tackle on a ball carrier, the announcers at times use such phrases as"lit up" or "blown up" to describe the offensive player's fate.

So if a certain Defensive End from the University of Illinois makes an NFL club within the next year or two and lays on one of those heavy hits, such phrases may sound like some very unfortunate puns. I can just hear someone like Joe Buck exclaim "And Peterson gets blown up by Jihad Ward!!" 

I guess now would be the time for all NFL announcers to start working some new catch phrases into the vernacular, eh?
