Mix and choose

Mike Woodson, basketball coach at Indiana University, was previewing the IU Penn state game. When asked whether he’s now focusing more on offense than defense in practice, he said,  “we’re just going to mix and choose”.  This is a congruent conflation of “mix and match” and” pick and choose”, both meaning to select and combine various options. https://indiana.rivals.com/news/coach-q-a-mike-woodson-previews-penn-state-big-ten-play

This was submitted several minutes after the New Year began, making it 2022’s first malaphor. A big thanks to Bruce Ryan for spotting this one and sending it in.
