Why is the third game called the rubber match?
The term drives from contract bridge (the card game). There are two forms of bridge commonly played -- "duplicate", which is used in tournaments, and "rubber". A Rubber in rubber bridge consists of winning two out of three games, so if a match (or a series in sports) is tied at one-to-one, the "rubber" depends on winning that final game, hence the "rubber game" or "rubber match".

It is confirmed that the third book will be named Mockingjay.
A rubber match is basically a tie breaker match. Whenever two guys have each won one match against each other, the rubber match would determine the winner of the series/th…e better man.
All solids have definite shape, volume and distinct boundaries. A Rubber band too has a definite shape, volume and distinct boundaries. Only when some external force is applie…d, will it change its shape. After the force is withdrawn, due to its intermolecular force of attraction, it resumes its original shape and size. Moreover , As it doesn't flow from a region of higher concentration to a region of lower concentration (like liquids and gases,) it has to be a solid.
It is called Mocking jay.
It's usually called a bowling game as opossed to a match. Actually, a person bowling 10 frames, wheather alone or with someone, is a game. But if they're bowling against …someone in competition, then its a match.
So I've been reading up on this, as I had the same question...and what I can gather is that isn't any awesome story attached :(. It's called a rubber policeman simply due to t…he fact that it's a "rubber" attachment to stirring rod, and it "polices" things by keeping them clean and in order. So I suppose they could have called it a rubber policer...but maybe they thought it looked like someone where a helmet too so added a man at the end. But that's the best I can find, enjoy chemistry :).
Usually a "rubber match" or "rubber game" of a 3 game series is only played if no one has a chance to sweep the series. If team A wins game 1 and team B wins game 2, it sh…ows game 3 can go either way... Sorta like how rubber can bend either way. Thus, "Rubber game" of the series. According to Paul Dickson's The New Dickson's Baseball Dictionary (Harcourt Brace, 1999), a "rubber game" is "The last and deciding game of a series when the previous games have been split; e.g., the seventh game of the World Series." This tie-breaking sense of "rubber" apparently originated in the pulse-pounding English game of "bowls," or lawn bowling. Despite its name, bowls has little in common with American bowling, and consists of rolling wooden balls (called "bowls") across a level green, the object being to get your ball as close as possible to (but not to hit) a little white ball at the other end of the green. "Rubber" in its tie-breaking sense first appeared in the context of bowls around 1599, and was in use by the card-playing crowd (whist, bridge, etc.) by 1744. A set of three games of bridge is still generally referred to as a "rubber." Unfortunately, no one knows where "rubber" in this sense came from. It appears to be unrelated to the elastic sort of "rubber." (Incidentally, our modern elastic "rubber" is short for "India-rubber," from its original source in the East Indies. "Rubber" previously meant anything used to rub, smooth or clean.) Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable ventures that the term may have referred to two "bowls" rubbing together, a fatal error in the game of bowls. Or it might be a metaphorical use of "rubber" (something that expunges) referring to the "sudden death" third game of a series, the loss of which would conclusively "rub out" the losing team's hopes. But there is, sad to say, no solid evidence for either theory." I think that 'rubber match' will mean the match that will decide the rubber ie the fifth in a series of five. The term rubber doesn't itself mean decisive.

According to Bill Kellogg - a committee member on the USA DAVIS CUP- the International Tennis Federation came up with another term to distinguish between a "match between …nations" and the "individual match between the players". The term is a tie. For example USA vs France is a tie. The term "rubber" is taken from other sports like cricket. Also used in Bridge to stand for 2 out of 3 games. Rubber in tennis is the match between players. The dictionary definition says something like this: "a rubber is a deciding contest of 2 opponents who have previously won their same number of contests from each other."
