"Low hanging fruit" is a very popular expression in sports broadcasting right now

This is probably more worthy of a tweet than a blog.  Kind of like way back when I wrote a post called "It's weird you can't refrigerate bananas," the title is really the whole thing.  Anyway, I've noticed a lot of sports announcer type people use this expression a lot lately.  The context is usually something like "it's low hanging fruit to pick on Tony Romo for always throwing the big interception, but he's actually one of the best..."  I don't think I'd ever heard it on a sports news broadcast in my life until sometime in the last several months, and now I feel like it gets used all the time.

It reminds me of a couple years ago when everybody started saying "standing on his head" in reference to a hockey goalie playing really well; just the hot expression of the moment.  Am I weird for thinking this?  Anybody else notice this phenomenon too?

And I like the cow in this picture, so I decided to go with it.
