    hockey franchise, G-man

    In the sentence below, what do the words in bold mean?

    Hell'll have a hockey franchise when you get an idea, Thorpe. Don't go wussy on me here, G-man.

    The End.

    A wuss is an American slang term for a weak or ineffectual person, so someone who is wussy is being ineffective.

    Re: hockey franchise, G-man

    It could mean:

    He'll have a hockey franchise (be rich and famous) before you get an idea, Thorpe. Don't go wussy on me (don't turn into a weakling) here, G-man.

    It is every man's dream to own a hockey franchise (hockey team). You must be very rich and powerful to own one. Only a few people do.

    Thank you susiedqq,

    I have just checked again, and it is "Hell'll".

    Best regards!

    Hell will have a hockey franchise when you get an idea, Thorpe.

    I think that the writter is trying to say that Thorpe is very stupid.

    Then he turned out of the hut and down the path toward the mess hall. He was beginning to rage again. " Now how the hell " -- he spoke aloud -- " How the hell will I ever swing that? "

    " If you swoop your toddler into his stroller when he wanted to walk, all hell will let loose. Act as if you had all the time in the world, and offer to be the horse and pull him home and you will get there as fast your legs will take the two of you. " 6. Give choices, but ones you can stand by.

    " Gena's head was reeling from Quadir's blatant adoration, and every square inch of her body sported a blush. " I'm with my girlfriend, Sahirah. " " Oh, " he said, looking at Sahirah as if to say,' How the hell will she save you?' Shifting back to reality, remembering the kilos of cocaine in the trunk of the Beemer, he said, " We got to go, but I want to see you tomorrow. Will you be in Philly tomorrow? " " Yes. Wan na switch numbers? " " Most definitely.
