The other day, at some kind of social function, I broke out the phrase, "Looks like someone called a hot route," when referring to someone doing something a little bit unexpected. All the people I was standing with looked at me, and it was clear they were all thinking the same thing: "Awesome use of football terminology in everyday life. This guy obviously pays close attention when he watches Gruden's QB Camp."
I do really pay close attention when I watch Gruden's QB Camp. I find that the lingo comes in really handy and it generally improves the way people look at me at the office, at parties, just wherever I break it out. These are all phrases used in the most recent run of Gruden's
episodes, featuring prospects such as Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Brandon Weeden, and Brock Osweiler.
