Word on the Street

Pine Pony (pahyn poh-nee) noun. The team bench, sports players sit on during gameplay. To “ride the pine pony” means to sit out of a game because of an injury, a suspension, or, especially, because a player sucks..

Usage example: “Brent Barry is a long time rider on the pine pony.”

Word history: In the begining the word -or use of the word pine pony, was seen as a negative thing. Todays meaning includes even players that are out with injurys, etc. Still, in a pickup game you wouldn’t wanna ride the pine pony, to tell you the truth… It Sucks!

When it comes to womens sport, the phrase “riding the pine” gets a whole new meaning.
