I am trying to help a law student who wants to search for sports analogies in judicial opinions relating to antitrust law.  Can anyone suggest to me websites that provide dictionary or thesaurus information on sports words and phrases ?  What would be ideal would be a general online dictionary or thesaurus that categorizes words and phrases, with categories including "Sports" or "Baseball" or "Football" or "Basketball" or "Boxing," or an online dictionary or thesaurus exclusively devoted to sports or specific sports.  A smaller dictionary or thesaurus would be better than a larger one, as a larger one might have thousands of terms that would be too time-consuming to deal with.
