Sports have always been a world of clichés and terms of their own. Some are pretty well understood, like double play and no-hitter. Others take a little explanation–like gap defense. This is a football term that describes how the defensive players line up and attack the offense. For example, the middle defensive player might have the gap between the center and right guard as his attack area. His job is to stop any play headed in that direction. Just to confuse you, that would be the A gap on the offensive line. The space between each lineman is assigned a letter so as you go out from center the spaces are labeled A, B, and C. A is the center-guard gap, B is the guard-tackle gap, and C is the tackle-end gap. The opposite line positions have the same gap numbers, so you might say right gaps or left gaps. While we are on football, the term 5-3 usually refers to the base defense. In this there would be 5 defensive linemen and 3 linebackers. That would leave 3 positions for the defensive backs. One of the terms in basketball that confuses a lot of people is the moving pick foul. If you are on offense and you try to pick off the defensive player so your teammate can get an open shot, this is called a pick. To do this legally, you must get there in advance, set your feet, and not move. If you try to slide one way or the other to set a better pick, you would be called for a moving pick and get a foul called on yourself. You also can get a foul called if you stick out your leg to stop the player. Also, as I stated, you are not allowed to move once you take up the position. At another time, I will explain some more of these confusing terms.
