Lay An Egg
Lay An Egg : Phrases
The Detroit Tigers set an excellent example of consistently laying an egg.
An egg resembles the number zero. To lay an egg would be to produce, register or score a zero. When you fail to score in the British sport of cricket, you get a zero - which looks like an egg. The term is also taken from baseball, where a zero is a goose egg.
