get off
 n.— «In a practice run on Saturday, Dungey had what the motocross publicists euphemistically refer to as a “get off.”I got sideways going over a jump and remember thinking, “This isn’t going to be good’” he said. “I went over the top and banged my head. Next thing I remember, I was in an ambulance and I was hollering, “What am I doing here? I don’t belong here. I’m supposed to be on the track.”» —“Motocross family endures scrapes together” by Patrick Reusse in Belle Plaine Star Tribune (Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota) July 13, 2007.
