According to dictionary.com a truck is defined as “any of various wheeled frames used for transporting heavy objects.”
Job well done. A great post if I do say so myself.
No, just kidding, this post is not about a lorry -as the Brits call it- but instead it’s about the word “truck” as a verb, and more specifically the meaning it has acquired with football connotation. Most people know this term, but for those of you that don’t it is in reference to when a player (usually in possession of the ball) flattens or “runs over” his opponent – like a truck.
