    Walk on slot

    Hi there!

    I heard an expression on tv the other day, "walk on slot". I gathered it was something like having a hard time. Is that correct? Is it a common expression?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hmmmm, I am having trouble with this one.

    Are you sure they are the right words? Can you give us the full sentence they were part of?

    Does it have anything to do with airplane travel?

    A "walk-on" is a very small acting part in a play. A slot is another word for a role in a play.

    That may be it. The context is: this high school guy was planning on being accepted in college to play football, but he failed a class and wasnīt allowed to play during his senior year.

    The whole line was: "Itīs kind of a pipe dream, though. Iīll have to go for a walk on slot. Itīs kind of hard to get recruited when they donīt let you play your senior year".
