Bohica Baby!

I'm not normally a big Jim Rome fan, but I occasionally catch a little bit of his show if I head out to lunch someplace. Today I caught a piece of it where a Boston fan was talking smack to basically the rest of the country and he introduced the term "bohica" which stands for "Bend Over Here It Comes Again!" You know that feeling when you are watching a game and you know when something bad is going to happen because you've seen it happen so many times before. I liked the term so much, I put together a little list of some bohica moments we all might be familiar with:

-The direct snap to the kicker who pooch punts from the FG formation from the opponents 32 up by four with 2 and a half minutes to go in the game, also known as Lloyd's favorite trick play
-The rush of spartan football fans who proclaim that "this is the year" or "Pride comes before the fall" before the inevitable crushing defeat at the hands of their bitter rival and the season implosion that follows
-The Rasheed Wallace technical / meltdown that comes at a key point of a deciding playoff game.
-The Florida State field goal attempt that sails just outside the uprights as time expires against Miami
-Penn State complaints about officiating after losing to Michigan. Actually the whole Michigan series must seem like one bohica moment after another for Penn State fans.
