Basketball fans … have definitely heard the term “dropping a dime”.
But what does it mean … and how did it originate?
In the game of basketball … an assist is registered when one player makes a pass to another … and that pass is integral to a basket being scored.
The saying is believed to have originated from the days before cell phones … (when you actually had to find a pay phone to make a call).
Back then, it cost 10 cents to make a phone call … and a person would often ask another for a dime. As such … giving someone a dime was, in essence – assisting them to make a phone call.
What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
