I had the balls to 4 watch last night, I'm really tired.
In racing games, when a player looses controll of his or her vehicle (whether by lapse of concentration, colision, weapon, or other means), causing the players vehicle to bounce uncontrolibly off the walls of the track for several seconds, resulting in severe damage or death.

I was doing really good, but I took this turn to sharp, and ended up pinballing off the walls. You can guess what happened...
