  • Hey Mike! Great comments! LOL I greatly appreciate your feedback! I’ll add those to my list! LOL

  • Man…Great post.

    We say:
    “Twen-Twen” for 20 points.

    20 points scored with the Big 6 and Big 4 is an “Eazy-E”

    Whenever points are scored in an unusual way we call it “(points) the hard way”

    “Bonin’ in the Boneyard” (after the Fishbone song) or “digging” when someone is sent to the boneyard as in “Start digging”

    “Ordered up a Rib Platter” or “Ribs” when someone “digs” a lot of bones. If they get stuck with them they “Ate a bunch of ribs” as in, “player X made me eat a bunch of ribs last night.”

    “Staying alive” when every time you hit the boneyard you come up with points…“I was bonin in the boneyard, but I kept staying alive”

    That’s all I can think of right now.
