The word "jocks" either conjures up images of Scots or American high school quarterbacks. While the former may be envisaged as dour, stony-faced and apparently under a permanent black cloud, we would not expect the latter to be affected by any kind of mental anguish. The whole point of the expression is that sporting achievement among the young goes hand in hand with immunity to any kind of introspection. After all, they get the prettiest girls, the open-top cars, the adulation of the crowd. The quarterbacks, that is, not the Scots. Who needs a convertible under all those black clouds?
