I need to step on my game

Believe it or not, we have another malaphor from the tv show “7 Little Johnstons”. Daughter Emma is talking about rock climbing as a form of training to improve her performance as a cheerleader. This is a nice congruent conflation of “step up (one’s) game” (to improve in some way) and “on (one’s) game” (playing well). Game is the operative word here. A big thanks to Mike Kovacs for hearing this one and sending it in.
