Have you ever flashed at a zooter in the corridor of
uncertainty while on a sticky dog? Maybe you’ve seen someone hit a mulligan
out of the screws to grab a birdie at Amen Corner?

The world of sport has its own language, wonderfully rich in strange words
and phrases, whose origins often stretch back centuries. Veteran BBC
presenter and football legend Bob Wilson has written this brilliant
illustrated guide to the fascinating true meanings, heritage and evolution
of the great sporting terms we use today.
