Acting as if something good will definitely happen, without it happening yet, and then paying for such optimism.

Derived from football, where the wide receiver starts thinking about what he is going to do AFTER the catch, before the ball gets to him. Inevitably the wide receiver drops the ball.
I swore I was going to get an offer from that company I have been interviewing with, so I haven't done any work in days. The job fell through. I was running before the catch.
