Perfect game---When a baseball pitcher faces 27 batters and none of them gets on base...OR what your college boyfriend THINKS he has going, when he's two timing you with another woman Shut out---Is a baseball game where atleast one team does not score any runs OR when your boyfriend is found out for his cheating ways and can no longer come over for late night visits!! Can you tell I am a baseball fan with a history of lousy boyfriends :)

Yes those are two Good Ones. So has you boyfriend ever got a Shutout from you? Perhaps if you would let him get a couple of "home-runs!" you wouldn't have to give him so many "shut-outs!" :)

There is the "Grand Salami" which is a reference to a Grand Slam home run in Baseball.. where the batter hits a home run with 3 runners on base. I think it is funny to relate the home run to a sausage!
