Lay the lumber (Words, Sayings, and Slogans, Sports, Games and Toys)

"I mean, there was this one married lady, smokin' hot blonde. Cried all day and ashed Pall Malls all over my couch, but, man, could she lay the lumber."

So, apparently this is actually a sports reference. Seriously. I assumed it was sexual, too, given Vinnie's propensities. It sounds like he's saying that this lady could...well, that she was good in bed. But maybe she's actually a professional hockey player, because "lay the lumber" seems to be to hit someone with a hockey stick. Huh.
