    Butch spirit

    I was just watching "The Big Bang Theory" and at some point Sheldon said:

    Please reserve that butch spirit
    for the lanes.

    What is a butch spirit? I couldn't find it anywhere.

    Thanks

    Not a teacher only a native.

    "Butch" means manly, masculine in appearance or behaviour. So if you have a "butch spirit" you act very manly, not like a lady or girl would.
