Stuart Scott stole this phrase, not from the legendary Vin Scully, as was suggested above, but from Wayne Walker, the former All Pro linebacker and color man for Detroit Lion broadcasts, who was using it to describe Joe Montana. ESPN anchors are notorious for pop cultural plagiarism, and there is no better example than Scott's taking credit for this wonderful descriptor.

This phrase was first used by Wayne Walker to describe Joe Montana. You can rewind CBS archives to find the exact date. I am guessing somewhere around 30 years ago. It may have been used before then, but after the aforementioned occurrence it made quite a bit of news in the Bay Area. Chris Berman probably remembers this.
When you have an erection lasting for more than 4 hours.
