heart-attack kids
 attrib.— «If the young Pittsburgh roster (and this reporter) want to keep their beards growing through the first round, they will have to pull a ridiculous miracle: three straight wins, two of them on the road. If this happens, the heart-attack kids—as they are called in the Pittsburgh media—may become a national nickname.» —“Grit and glory” by Aaron Kendeall in West Virginia University Daily Athenaeum (Morgantown, West Virginia) Apr. 19, 2007.
