If the individual chooses to not participate in the sport or fails to compete he is required to "Hog Home". Alternatively, the individual that chooses to "Hog Hard" typically becomes the embodiment of all that is great in the eyes of his gentlemen competitors. The individual who "Hogs" the hardest,usually the individual who goes home with the most unpleasant hog as determined collectively among his gentleman counterparts, is the ultimate winner in this gentleman's sport.
Winston: "Indeed I did, and quite a performance it was, to much the dismay of many gentleman who were forced to hog home Theodore hogged hard and won the match with minimal difficulty!"
Alternatively, prior to the beginning of the math one gentleman may turn to the other and say, "Hog Hard or Hog Home" which indicates that the match has begun.
