: hi guys.. just wondering what's the meaning and origin of the phrase "any given sunday"? thanks and godspeed. =)
It comes from American professional football, which is played (mainly) on Sunday. The full adage goes "on any given Sunday, any team can beat any other team", meaning that a weaker team still has a chance against a stronger opponent. A related sports phrase is "you have to play the games (to determine the outcome)".
