i myself haven't heard that idiom before, but it exists. and it is raining (world champion). at least i found it in some places on the internet in that form. it's a pity i didn't manage to find it's explanation anywhere..
or maybe it is an innovating transformation of some original idiomNekaltas hmmm..


I think you are mistaken about the "raining". I think if you found references on the web, it could as well be typos. Web is full of mistakes, even webpages created by native English speakers. If you are not sure about spelling, it's best to check with one of the dictionary sites, such as encarta.com. I was not able to find a dictionary definition that would define "reigning champion", but here is an article from encyclopedia:
"The second Karpov-Kasparov match in 1985 was organised as the best of 24 games, first player to 12.5 points would claim the title (in the event of a 12-12 draw, the title would go to Karpov as the reigning champion). "

Thank you, GabbyN, for the compliment Gėlė. Unfortunatley, I have not seen "Elusive Muse", but perhaps I will one day.

There are tons of English idioms that are very strange, but if you can learn them you’ll be able to impress people who are not used to the language. And now you can visit https://www.essaywritinglab.co.uk/dissertation/ to write quality task easily. The strangest English idioms are usually ones that are kind of Latin or Old English, but if you can learn them you’ll be able to impress people who are not used to the language.

You can also use the old-fashioned way of opening up the phonebook to find a doctor near you. There should be plenty of listings, some with full-page advertisements that offer detailed information. You might even https://bestdoctornearme.com/ notice a few doctors that offer discounted services if you mention where you found the information, or even just note that you are a new patient. Either way, this is a fast way to locate a new practitioner near you.

The local dishes is Ceviche, which is special and is made from seafood. I make mine version here at home with cooked shrimp and crab. The delicacies found in most https://chinesebuffetnearmenow.net/vietnamese-buffet-near-me/ salads is Hearts of Palm. I feel like is great, especially since I love Hearts of Palm. Here in the states they're expensive and I haven't had any for a long time.
