I've been trying to find out about the word 'Whitewash', in relation to winning a sporting series when the opposition haven't won any games.
Harder than I thought when it comes to the web. Plenty on whitewashing walls but only one line entries re sporting events.
I want to know if it has something to do with the score card/board, i.e. no score white score board. Or is it like the saying 'White lie'. Which may have something to do with 'race'. In as far as white is good and black is bad.
So if anyone out there knows the answer to question of 'Whitewash' or any other interpretations then please let me know.

Any additional comments can be sent to
