Cash it homePosted: May 5, 2023 Filed under: Uncategorized Leave a comment
During the NBA playoff game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors, ESPN commentator Jeff Van Gundy described a Laker basket in the first quarter where the player went through traffic to score. He said the player was able to “cash it home” despite the defense. This is a mash up of “send/take home” (win some sort of achievement) and “cash in” (to take advantage of a situation or moment). “Drive home” (to make a point) may also be in the mix as the player was driving to the basket and made a point (literally a couple). A big thanks to Bruce Ryan for hearing this one and sending it in!
