Word on the Street

On Fire (un fahy-uh-r) noun, verb. to be on fire, to catch fire. A state of mind in which people believe that they are unstoppable and can do anything they want – and they do.

Usage example: “Damn, did you see Allen Iverson last nite? He was on fire.”

Word history: A catch phrase as old as the game itself. Nobody really knows the story behind the saying, but old NBA tapes shows that it’s been around for awhile. On fire became synynomous with the NBA Live series on PSOne and has from there on, just exploded, nowdays everybody use the phrase.


On fire or just very, very poopy?
