Bleacher Report collaborated with New York-based illustrator Henry Kaye in an effort to visualize how cliches have infiltrated every facet of sports, from Little League to movies to color commentary. 

From "They've got great team chemistry" and "We've got a real barn burner" to "He's on fire," below are 15 classic sports cliches illustrated.
