Quiz Description

For Olympic wrestling fans, I'd like to present the following cheer from my high school days (the cheerleaders couldn't do it, but the spectators could):
RAH! RAH! REE! Kick him in the knee!
RAH! RAH! RASS! Kick him in the other knee!

The relevance of this offering may or may not become clear.
