He was able to pick himself up and scrape himself off

Another from the sports world.  Molly Shafer heard this one on her local sports cast referring to a Buffalo Bills injury – “Could it be serious? It could be, but he was able to pick himself up and scrape himself off.”   This is a nice blend of “pick yourself up” and “dust yourself off”, both meaning to prepare yourself to continue doing something that you unexpectedly stopped doing.  “Scrape someone or something off the pavement” may also be in the mix. Thanks for sharing Molly!
