    But, it ain't over til the fat lady sings.where did that saying come from, anyway?

    Dick Motta, the ex-coach of the then Washington Bullets, was the first to use it, I believe

    Wasn't Dick Motta. This below from "Wicked" Pedia: 
    The first recorded use is by the sports writer and broadcaster Dan Cook; his original line was "The opera ain't over till the fat lady sings."[1]This occurred in April 1978, when he used the phrase after the first basketball game between the San Antonio Spurs and the Washington Bullets (now the Washington Wizards) during the 1977–1978 National Basketball Association playoffs, to illustrate that while the Spurs had won once, the series was not over yet.
