“Southern Terms” & how they relate to Sports Ministry. In our staff meetings at CEDESPORTS I tend to reveal my Alabama roots and use terms that evoke a weird look from my coworkers. So, I have to explain myself. Here's one example! Gee Haw – not to be confused with Yee Haw. Yee Haw is right and left commands for controlling a beast of burden with respect to the current path. Gee Haw means things align or fit together or are compatible. Used in a Sports Ministry context: · The mission of the sports ministry does not gee haw with the church as a whole. · “I don’t gee haw with pink uniforms for the men’s basketball team!”
