Kick on the shins, doggone my shins (american slang)

Posted by Junius on October 14, 2004

the exression 'kick on the shins' is common in football and other sports but I guess 'doggone my shins' its more like american slang, probably from baseball or american football but that is a wild shot, any ideas of meaning and origin on the second one?
