So it's a palindrome, like "Bolton"?

"Bolton" spelled backwards is "Not lob." I think it's a tennis reference--perhaps the ball bounces funny on a bumpy court.

You ever take a bump made you feel like you'd just slept for twelve hours?

And the Brewers and Dodgers are tied in the NLCS. Next game is winner-take-all.

A few of us are needing bump-therapy. Any pros on the board available for appointments?

Then you go to the box, and feel shame. Then you get out again.

I was at the local pro wrestling show tonight. During one match, the referee took a serious bump.

Ah, Beck. In wrestling lingo, "taking a bump" means "getting seriously hit." The referee fell out of the ring, and couldn't get up for a while. Meanwhile mayhem ensued in the ring, with multiple wrestlers "bumping" each other--that is, they were seriously pounding the crap out of each other.

Bumping a referee should get the wrestler bumped out on his ear.

You'd think so, but referees practice this sort of thing. I was talking with the referee later; he said when he saw how things were setting up, he was prepared to get bumped.

The Dodgers might have bumped the Brewers out of the World Series, but some players from Boston are going to whip their asses.

If you think the Red Sox cannot win two more games, you are a bumping asshole.
