Baseball is not my favorite sport, but I still admire its presence in the American version of the English language. You might say it's a hit.
But what about the disbelieving replies that just wore out? Those of us who would have answered "I didn't eat the last piece of cake" by saying "Oh, and the Cubs are in the World Series" need some new expressions.
Well, here are some contenders:
-- The Chicago River is ready for swimming.
-- There were no calories in that last piece of cake.
-- I just got a raise -- a hundred-percent raise.
-- The dog had kittens.
