  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 293. The idiom today is in the bag.

  • Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If someone says that he or she has

  • something in the bag, it means that he or she believes that it is almost certain

  • or guaranteed success of something. So it's in the bag. Don't worry. We got it.

  • It'll work out. It's in the bag. Don't worry about it.

  • We're going to win. It's guaranteed no doubt about it. All right. Let's continue. The

  • phrase is believed to be derived due to an old baseball superstition. It

  • started during an amazing twenty-six game winning streak. The New York Giants

  • had in 1916. Remember the New York, the Giants used to be a New York team a long

  • time ago. They eventually moved to San Francisco and they are the San Francisco

  • Giants now. But there was one time where New York actually had three baseball

  • teams. They had the New York Yankees . They had the Brooklyn Dodgers and they had

  • the New York Giants as well. Okay. It was believed that if the Giants had

  • the lead going into the ninth inning and if the ball bag that which contain you

  • know, foul balls during the day. I guess guess at that time they used to just

  • collect the foul balls and throw them in a bag and at the end of the day or

  • whatever they would bring bring that in. But which contain foul balls gathered

  • during the game was carried off the field. The thinking was the game was in

  • the bag and could not be lost from that point on. So the Giants would definitely

  • win. So if going into the ninth inning. So they'll take it. They're certain that the

  • other team won't catch up. They thought well that was it. That kind of guaranteed

  • their win and that, that's what they believed. So that's where the phrase,

  • in the bag is supposed to come from. That's where it's believed to have come

  • from. Yeah. You know, sports have a lot of superstitions. A lot of a ... lot of sports

  • players have a lot of crazy ideas about what will bring them luck or continue

  • their streak . But anyway, that's how it started.

  • Okay. Let's continue. Let's give just three examples here. Example number one.

  • He has no serious competition. The Oscar is in the bag. Yes. Or I'm sure that actor

  • is going to win the Academy Award this year. He has no serious competition. The

  • Oscar is in the bag. Don't worry. No. There's no real competition. Nobody they,

  • they should definitely choose him. It's in the bag. It's almost guaranteed.

  • All right. Anyway, number. two. Things are going well with the negotiations. However

  • we still have a few sticking points to work out it's not in the bag yet. This is

  • another way we could use it. We could say you know, it's not quite there yet. Not in

  • the bag yet. It's not guaranteed yet. But you know, we're getting close. Okay. Number

  • three here. Don't worry. We have a lot of connections with the higher-ups. You know,

  • people in high positions in that company. In that company , you'll be chosen as one

  • of the new employees hired. It is in the bag. Don't worry. They'll do it for us.

  • It's guaranteed. It's in the bag already. You already got the job. Don't worry

  • about it. Okay. Anyway, this is just how we use it. I hope you got it. I hope it was clear.

  • I hope it was informative. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
