I heard it in a recent TV episode. Someone walks with a limp (probably a ruptured Achilles' heel), and the doctor mentions that he had the accident “blowing a dismount on a keg stand”.


"Blowing" in this sense means getting wrong, screwing up, etc.

"a dismount" is an attempt to get off something ("The part of a routine in which the gymnast detaches from an apparatus.")

I had no idea what a "keg stand" is, but Wikipedia helped me out.
