Why is a good arm called a “hose”
Posted: 10 March 2009 03:06 PM   [ Ignore ]

I always pictured the thrower’s arm as a loose hose that got slung forward and the ball shooting out of it.  Sort of like a flexible lacrosse stick.  My friend just mentioned that he pictured a firehose where the ball was shooting out like water. 

Anyone know who’s less wrong?

Relief pitchers throw hard.  Relief pitchers are called fireman.  Firemen use hoses.
