According to Wikipedia:
A double entendre is a figure of speech in which a spoken phrase is devised to be understood in either of two ways. Often the first (more obvious) meaning is straightforward, while the second meaning is less so: often risqué or ironic.
When describing football, players use take their hands off, try to find the hole, and shoot into the gap. This makes for some often hilarious commentary. I would have far more of these, except I was watching more of The Bachelor than Monday Night Football this season.
Enjoy, and if you remember any others, write them down in the comments!
