Hits and Misses and an Occasional Foul
I read that term in Jack Black's excellent early twentieth century tome "You Can't Win," a tale of hobos, ne'er-do-wells, and thieves. I highly recommend it.I had no idea it was a word others knew.
It was a fairly new word in 1911 since I found it not in the main text of the Century Cyclo but in the more modern supplement.
I need to find that book.
