I think we can agree that Ben Roethlisberger, who won the Super Bowl for the second time last night, has finished hitting the iceberg. Unfortunately, "starting to hit the iceberg" remains a rarely-used cliché.

    I wish him joy in his success, but not success in his cliche.
    Icebergs have been redolent of disaster at least since the Titanic.

    Hitting an iceberg does not become a true cliché until the deck-chairs have been rearranged.

    Why do you consider it unfortunate that this particular cliché hasn't gained popularity?
