"...I'm an oink away from Artisan."How far is an oink away from anything? I have never heard of this rare saying. Or is this something your trying to popularize?

This is an American football term. For those of you not familiar with this game, the ball is made out of pigskin. When a play is missed by an inch (or some other very small distance) a humorous way to describe the situation is to say that it was missed by an "oink," a reference to the pigskin. So much for mixing sports with WoW! :)

There is no such football terminoligy AT ALL.Don't know where you got that from, but you have either had your leg pulled or are joking.

oh yeah, a football is made of leather, NOT pigskin. That's just a euphemism of a description harking back to when the first balls were created and it WAS made of pigskin. Those days ended sometime in the 1930s...
