Derived from baseball dialogue, specifically the New York Yankees, 'did you?!' is a question to reference the certainty (or lack thereof) a player had that his hit was going to be a home run. However the same term can be applied to any situation in which one stumbles upon good fortune, or in which one has a commanding performance or feat of accomplishment.
