The most painful & stressful period of minutes where a rower places oneself on the erg and is determined to finish in the lowest time possible. A rower pulls the distance of 2000 kilometers, hence the name 2k.Extreme amounts of water must be consumed before the painful experience to hydrate the mussels. Talk about lactic acid, your body is full of it and crying out for help. During this time period, you will cry, scream, sweat, and be full of pain. However, the dreaded 2k may determine your seating position, so there is no time for slacking.
A shortened name for "NBA 2K__". (Insert year in the blank, like 2K13.) Since NBA 2K has become the de facto NBA simulation game, much like Madden for NFL, many people understand "2K" to mean the basketball sim.
"Don't nobody wanna see me in that 2K."
"No class today for me; 2K just came out."
