This is why I always tell rivals to "give me a million dollars" prior to playing against them. I've gotten the weirdest looks and people are starting to talk behind my back, but it'll be worth it once I'm rolling in dough!

How did he break your leg? Did he trip you, or shove you on the ground or something. Either way, amazing that the leg was broken, hmm.... Good luck op. Remember you still have a leg to stand on.

While yes, it does mean taking a bow, there is another meaning. Also originating in theater, actors being superstitious and all thought that by inviting bad luck they would have good luck. Though it doesn't necessarily have to be used for theater. In this case though I think OP was using it more sarcastically than anything. Or just wanting his brother to have good luck.

The term goes back to the days of Vaudeville where time was valuable and not everyone could go on stage. At some shows, acts would line up at the side of the stage (called a leg). If they made it past a certain point it was guaranteed that their act would go on stage. This was called 'breaking a leg'. The term "break a leg" came to mean "I hope you make it on stage" and in time "Good luck". It was seen as bad form to say anything other than "break a leg"/"I hope you make it on stage". So, in this case, "break a leg" could mean "I hope you make it off the bench".

Maybe each school caters to different interests? Like one might have a really good math program and the other might have an amazing marching band. Just a few examples. Kids are all unique and schools should ideally be chosen because it is what is best for each individual child rather than convenience for the parents or just a matter of "siblings should go to the same school." I'm just guessing of course.

In my county, we have these programs called Specialty Centers that you apply for your 8th grade year. Each Speciality Center has a different focus and only accepts about 100 students per class. For example, one could be for Health Science (My rival), Mathematics & Science (My school), Technology (Another rival), Performing arts, etc.

If the rezoning was just done and one is a senior, they get to keep going to their school, while if another is younger than a senior, they will be forced to move. This is how it's done in my county so I'm just guessing it could be the same for them.

My twin brother and I went to different specialty high schools and attend different universities. That could be the case here or they could even live in different areas. You never know

'Break a leg' is for stage productions, when you want to wish your loved one a standing ovation that they will receive taking a bow or curtesy, not for a contact sport where a leg injury is a real threat. YDI.

...are you serious, 15? Are you seriously saying that OP deserves to have a broken leg over a choice of words? Granted, I myself made a joke about that, but a joke was all it was. What the hell is wrong with you?
