He turned a lot of eyes

Jeff Hathorn on the Pittsburgh sports radio show 93.7 The Fan was talking about Pittsburgh Steeler rookies who were sensations in training camp. He then said Plaxico Burress “turned a lot of eyes”. This is a congruent conflation of “turned a lot of heads” and “opened a lot of eyes”, both meaning to attract a great deal of attention.

A big thank you to John Kooser for hearing this one and sending it in!
