    Should be a reference to a Saturday Night Live skit on Blue Oyster Cult’s hit, Don’t Fear the Reaper…Christopher Walken’s often used phase was he (as the producer) wanted “more cowbell” in the song.

    @The J.A.M.

    This is a football reference. When a player has to leave the game without an obvious multiple fracture or a ruptured spleen, the announcers usually consider the reason to be a minor one. Especially if the player returns a couple plays later: “He just had his bell rung.”

    I think it originates with the idea that getting a concussion in football may seem like hearing the bell at the beginning of a round of a boxing match, but I may be wrong with that one.

    In my experience, cow are usually pretty poor soccer players.

    Thanks for the explanation.

    Though it shows just how long it’s been since I’ve watched a soccer game.

    Or ANY game of ANY organized sport (gave those up since 2005).

    I was thinking if it were footballs lying around they would be playing for the Buffalo Bills. With soccer balls (futbol balls?) lying around, they must be playing for I had to look this up The New York Red Bulls.
