This question already has an answer here:
What does it mean when we say "get set" in the phase "get ready get set go" or the phrase "on your marts get set go"?
This question focuses on the term "Get Set" not just in reference to a sport but in general.
Many times I hear people speaking about being set and ready as if they meant the same thing... however i do not believe so.. hence my question. while get ready, and go are obvious, if I were to tell someone get set.. what exactly am I saying to them?
