"Kelly killed it" A two run home run for Kelly Johnson and the Yankees take a 4-3 lead on Sports Radio 66 and 101.9 FM WFAN!
Yes, we must never forget that this is merely spring training. The home run calls don't count. Nobody will remember John Sterling's joyful cry in Tampa, long after its been fine tuned or replaced in New York City. Like Joe Girardi, The Master is moving chess pieces, trying various lineups, studying his binder... looking for what works - and what doesn't.
Kelly killed it... no. NO.
Unless I'm missing something - a Broadway show tune from 1935? - there is no musical, literary, societal, political, theological, spiritual or emotional application for "Kelly killed it." It's alliteration. That's all. In fact, if you're doing alliteration, a simple trip to Roget's will bring forth better chances. Kelly crushes it, Kelly clobbers it, Kelly canes it, Kelly creams it, Kelly cleans it, Kelly caps it, Kelly catapults it, Kelly castigates it, Kelly caluminates it, Kelly castrates it...
Let's remember: It's early. Kelly Johnson might not make the Yankee starting lineup. Right now, The Master is working himself into playing shape.
Let's hope Kelly hits a few more this month, just to give John a second shot at the binder.
