    My sons and I used to love to throw (toss) a baseball back and forth. "Shall we go out for a toss?"

    A toss might also refer to the toss of a coin to determine who wins. For instance, two of you might come across an abandoned chair. You flip a coin to see you gets it. Thus, "it goes for a toss."

    But where have you seen the expression used?
