Here are some examples:
"That's strike three."
"You hit a home run with that one."
"The Ball's in your court."
"You threw him a curve."
"He is going for the Hail Mary."
"Swung on and missed."
I mean, they go on and on. Do you all think this is a representation of a certain pattern or sociological sign of our culture today? Do you think that entertainment so pervades our lives now that we are reduced to describing our world through metaphors to what we understand?
Do you see this as a bad thing or a good thing?
