Community Project: New Member/Vistors "Cheat" Sheet

In response to a recent suggestion, perhaps we can use this thread to catalogue the origins of certain phrases or references that often have newbies/visitors scratching their heads.  For example, at every reference to "Liz" someone will ask "who's Liz", and with good reason: how could anybody be expected to remember a late-season game in that suckitude known as 2007?  By then, any normal person would've had something better to do on a Friday night instead of hanging out here!

So anyway, I'm thinking that if we each took one or two of these "inside" thingies, posted it/them as a comment, the burden could be shared easily (instead of dumping it on U-God).  I'm also thinking that "comments" in reply to these comments should be reserved for corrections/additions to that topic.  In other words, let's not get lardy with "oh I remember that" or "that was a good one".

I'll start with Liz:
