I have played basketball my entire life, and I believe that was one of the first things I learned. If you do something wrong, you be big enough to admit it and go on. Not only when a foul is committed, but also when a bad pass is thrown or you miss read another player on the court, will this saying be used. It has been around for years on the basketball court, and I can see how it would be used in everyday life. I have caught myself saying these words and not even realizing it. I do however try to limit its usage to the basketball court. I wouldn't want anyone to think I was being rude by using this particular terminology instead of saying,"It was my fault".
