I sifted through thousands of hours of post-game locker-room tape to bring you 11 of the top clichés used by athletes. And believe us when we say we gave it 110 percent—Okay, there’s one out of the way!

• “We’ve got another one in the win column, and that’s all that matters.”

• “We’re just going to take it one game at a time.”

• “They really brought their 'A-game' tonight.”

• “I’m the last one to make excuses.”

• “I want to thank God for this victory.”

• “We know what we gotta do; we just gotta go out there and do it.”

• “This is a childhood dream; you couldn’t write a better script.”

• “We’re going to get things turned around.”

• “The boys had a point to prove today.”

• “No comment.”
