He turned a lot of eyesPosted: August 10, 2022 Filed under: Uncategorized Leave a comment
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!
