In what sport would we hear… “He went bar down and sniped a hat trick“
  • Baseball because he batted the ball down to get a base hit
  • Gymnastics because he is on the parallel bars
  • Rugby because the player is tricking his opponent with a funny dance
  • Hockey because the player is scoring his 3rd goal
