Everybody’s hearts were in their stomachs

During the highlights of the Michigan – Ohio State game on TV, one of the commentators was talking about Tyler Durbin’s game-tying field-goal, and he said “everybody’s hearts were in their stomachs.” This is a nice mash-up of “hearts in their throats” (to be nervous or frightened) and “a bad feeling in the pit of their stomachs” (visceral response).  Perhaps the commentator was also thinking of the phrase, “a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” (if you want a man to love you, feed him good food).  In typing this malaphor on Google, I came across an article of a man whose heart was literally in his stomach. His picture is below.  Many thanks to Martin Pietrucha for hearing this beauty and sending it on.
