Jocks Speak Odd Tongue
"Love-30, service"
"Rip that seed"
"Dub, Dub, Dub"
To non-athletes, expressions like these will fall
upon his unsuspecting ears unnoticed, but to an
atnlete, they mean something.
Take the first one, "Love-30, service" for
example, doesn't that sound like the name of some
lonely hearts club for little old men over 30? And
that's just on tennis idiom.
When a tennis player says deuce, he doesn't
mean two's are wild . . . but rather, that the score
is tied. Then if the server scores, there's in add.
Getting one more point he wins, but if his
opponent gets the point it's duece again.
That could go forever, but luckily, tennis player
can't count. They skip from love to 15 to 30 to
40. Incidentally, love-30 service is how the server
announces the serve and score. Love, meaning
zero, is his own tally and 30 is his opponent's.
Serving twice in either the wrong court, or out
of bounds is labeled a double fault. Tennis players
also act as hurdlers in disguise. After a match, it's
customary for the winner to jump over the net and
shake the loser's hand. Let's hope he doesn't
Mentioning hurdlers, trackmen don't talk like us
either. Ever heard of running a split? Ruining .a
split with over-ripe bananas maybe . . . Listening
carefully, one discovers this refers to that portion
of a relay run by one man. The thinclads also
watch smoke, and count steps. All that on a track?
Well delving into the matter one sees that timers
must watch the smoke from the starter's gun
rather than listen for the sound, in order to start
the watch correctly. Counting the number of steps
it takes to run to the long jump or high jump pit is
just natural to high and long jumpers. This, they
say helps them jump higher, farther and take-off
right. Wonder if parachutists count their steps?
An anchor in track is capable of running the last
leg of a relay. That "uggh" is what one hears
watching a "Medford petunia" put the shot.
If one goes to the baseball field he'll find the
pitcher winding-up, the batter squeezing a runner
home on a suicide by laying down a bunt and the
team chattering. If you're smart, you won't go
down to the baseball field.
That arm action on the mound is a wind-up. A
suicide is when the team desperately needs a run,
so with a runner on third, the batter bunts. While
the pitcher winds (remember winding-up, learned
earlier) the runner on third streaks for home.
Ever notice how a coach or player is always
straightening his cap, or licking his fingers, or
something? Strange enough, they aren't spastic
and don't have habitually runny noses. Those
ridiculous antics mean something! Signs, however,
are confidential.
Back to "rip that seed" -in human terminology
that's hit the baU.
Now, we come to the most malicious linguistic
maze of all Golf! Linkmen have weapons; such
things as clubs, wedges, even 9-irons. Their balls
slice, hook, and pitch. And many times a golfer
will birdie or bogie, I lock my doors at night,
hoping he won't get me.
As usual I was wrong. A slice is when your ball
veers to the right, and hook is to the left. Pitch is a
type of short-range shot. A birdie is one under par
and a bogie is one over par. I'm depending on your
intelligence to figure out par.
Those funny words "dub, dub, dub" supposedly
illustrate how the ball sounds when you really
swing and it only goes a piddlin' little ways.
Now that everyone has brushed up on "athletic
adjectives," put this knowledge to use and next
time you see a sportsman, say a "dub dub" or two
at him.
mark placing first at 221".
Also included in the list of the
firsts were Jim McLean, running
the two mile in 10:12.5, Ed
Beadle in the 220 at 23.1, and
AlLord in the 440 at 54.2.
At Medford's annual Rogue
Relays the Ashland squad tied
down third place with 68 points.
While only placing third the
squad snared the largest number
of first places with four.
Hall Breaks Records
The meet highlight was high
hurdle star Roger Hall's 14 0 to
break the school, meet and
stadium record as well as posting
the best time in the state for the

the week before.

Dave Kitzman, and Don
McDonald broke the school
record with a 8: 13.4 time.
In the Ashland and SOC
co-sponsored Ore-Cal relays the
Ashland squad captured the B
division with a total of 99

meet record, and one inch off
the school record of 6'5" held

Boyce's first place pole vault at
1 2'6" as well as the sprint relay,
2-mile relay, mile relay and 880
Two Ashland standouts Roger
