Lost (Or Found) In Translation

Sunday at ultimate practice, a teammate (female) told me, "You guard him, he's too long for me." Previously, I'd heard "he's too high for me." Now, technically, these are both accurate translations of "Er ist zu hoch für mich." But it's not exactly what she was aiming for.

On the other hand, German teams do shower together, so maybe she knew exactly what she was saying.
