At the rate they’re calling flags….

At last week’s USC-Cal football game, ESPN announcer David Pollack said, “at the rate they’re calling flags, you better make sure you’re on it.”  This is a congruent conflation of of “throwing flags” (calling a penalty) with “calling penalties”.  A big thanks to Laszlo Veres (Malaphor Senior Vice President, Eastern Region) for hearing this one and passing it on!
