leave everything on the field
 v. phr.— «First he held forth at length the press conference for long stretches, then spent three solid hours that evening at the CBS party at the Rose Bowl, glad-handing critics on the stadium turf and talking a mile a minute into their tape recorders, sometimes hammy, sometimes deadly serious. As they say in sports, he left everything on the field.» —“Woods sells the goods” in Pasadena, California Kansas City Star (Missouri, Kansas) July 17, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
