Florida is currently on ESPN.com's front page, tied to this Mark Schlabach column on how important the Gators' next two games are to the SEC East race. This seems like a perfect time to clear something up: The phrase is actually "champing at the bit," not "chomping at the bit," and refers to horses. Using it like I do with Chomping At Bits is punning on both the Gator Chomp and "Two Bits"; using it as ESPN does here might be both, but is probably just the former.
