Here's an bit of random trivia... If "Five Strikes" were translated literally to Spanish, the term would be "Cinco Ataques" (five attacks). The word tirar means "to throw". While it is possible for the noun form, tiro, to mean a throw, the noun most commonly means a shot. And, just like English, the term is most often associated with serious or fatal injuries. So, Cinco Tiros = Five Shots. Think about that the next time you're hitting the tire.
