Winning Hands Down

Posted by A Ruben on January 17, 2003

It occured to me that the phrase "winning hands down" was a biblical reference in Exodus... When the Hebrews were in battle, Moses kept his arms up... and when he put his arms down, the Hebrews began to lose... Therefore winning with hands down means an easy win..
