Hi,

Please may I have a question about the phrase "he got rushed out"? Most of all I'm curious whether this phrase is being used in the context, where the speaker is saying that the particular person became famous.....In the other words, whether he got rushed out = he became famous??? Is it possible to use it like that?

I found these examples, which would confirm that it is possible, but I would like to have a confirmation from you.

a) We're on the same page about our scouts. Apparently you didn't see Skudra play before he got rushed out of the NHL.

or my sentence, which I'm trying to get up to speed...

- He got a rush out of saving this kid, right? (That guy was in the front of the newspapers, because of the save of that kid)

many thanks in advance and nice weekend to all of you.

regards

JCDentonApparently you didn't see Skudra play before he got rushed out of the NHL.
I would take this to mean that Skudra was removed (for lack of a better word) from the NHL. That is he is no longer an NHL player and he wasn't one for very long in any case, thus he was "rushed out" of the league before anyone got to see him play.
JCDenton- He got a rush out of saving this kid, right?
This is an entirely different use of the word "rush". It means the person got "a sudden, brief exhilaration" from the act of saving the kid. See the following link: http://www.answers.com/main/ntquery?s=rush&gwp=13 definition 10b
