This is from my lovely wife of all people. I was bemoaning the Blazers 9 of 12 and 5 straight losses. Then I was talking about how great it was when they were 25-16.
She compared the Blazers season to the infamous cough-fart.
Now the cough-fart as I understand it is this:
You have enormous.... pressure that needs to be released and you have the idea to make a loud cough while simultaneously making the necessary emission. The infamous cough-fart is when the loud cough is mis-timed so that everybody turns to observe who is coughing so loudly and then a humongous fart happens.
Essentially she meant that the Blazers played so well (loud cough) that they received a lot of attention and proceeded to fall out of the playoff race (big out of control fart).
I apologize to the classy among us, but since my wife is becoming more interested in the Blazers I had to share.
