“rising star”

Filed under: Football — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 7:24 am

after david williams recent move to NQ fc, i have seen several websites refer to him as a rising star.

tis a strange thing.  i thought that”rising” had something to do with an upwards trajectory, and i thought that “star” had something to do with, standing out, or shining.

imagine my surprise when i found out that rising star had nothing to do with those things.  apparently i was very wrong.  i picked up my trusty oxford concise and found out that rising star meant “to move to denmark, get a couple of starts, get anchored to the bench, mouth off at your employers, almost get sent to south africa, and then go on a loan move to the least attractive a-league team around”.

to give the devil his due, you could say that he is a talented prospect.  or a youngster with potential.  but a star?  all the aussies that came back from scandinavia have really blitzed the league, haven`t they?  michael thwaite, dylan mcallister.  blitzed the league.  and williams was sitting on a bench over there.
