    Re: Please, help me understand that phrase.

    When playing team sports in gym class in school, the coach/teacher selects two players to serve as the captains for the two teams. These two captains then alternate selecting players for their respective teams.

    The players chosen last are those judged by their peers to be the worst at sports.
