A game-ending illegal move by a pitcher in a tie game, last inning, home team at the plate and a runner on 3rd.
The Mets suck
They really suck - their pitcher just balked
Braves win! Braves Win!
It's a Balk-off!
|2.||Walk-Off Home Run|
A term in sports lingo that has gotten completely out of control. Originally coined by Dennis Eckersley in 1993 to describe a home run of such power that you don't even turn around to look ... you just walk off the mound.
The corny fools at ESPN - and their brain dead followers - now use the term to decribe virtually any play that ends the game; walk-off hit, balk, double, single, etc.
"Game-ending" and "Game-winning" have surrendered.
If we use the term "Walk-Off Home Run" why not ... "The Mets lost in the bottom of the 10th on a walk-off groundout."
Baseball term used to describe the home team winning the game in its final at bat forcing the loosing team to ‘walkoff’ the field. Most prominently and dramatically used along with homeruns but can be used along with any event(homerun, double, single, walk, balk…) that concludes the game.
David Ortiz hit a walkoff homerun in the bottom of the 12th inning to beat the Yankees in game 4 of the ALCS, and the rest was history.
History: Apparently the term was first coined by Dennis Eckersley after giving up a “walk off piece” to Kirk Gibson in game one of the 1988 World Series. While the initial usage was considered negatively toward the loosing team (especially the pitcher) it is more prominently used in a celebratory fashion for the hitter.

Librans hate to be rude, yet they'll straighten the crooked picture on your wall and snap off your blaring TV sfft. Librans love people, but they hate large crowds. Like gentle doves of peace, they go around mediating and patching tip quarrels between others; still they enjoy a good argument themselves. They're goodnatured and pleasant, but they can also be sulky, and they balk at taking orders. Librans are extremely intelligent. At the same time, they're incredibly naive and gullible. They'll talk your ear off, yet they're wonderfully good listeners. Librans are restless people. But they seldom rush or hurry. Are you completely confused? You're not alone. There's a frustrating inconsistency to this Sun sign that puzzles themselves as much as it does others.more...
To truly understand Libra, you must understand the riddle of the scales; one side heaped high with October's vivid, golden leaves, suggesting brisk, autumn weather - the other side holding sky blue bunches of shy violets, drenched in the fresh scent of April rain. When the scales dip, bright optimism turns into silent panic, weighed down with lonely depression. When they balance, they produce a perfect harmony between his rich, crackling intellect and his affectionate, sympathetic heart. The seasons hold Libra's secret. Winter is too cold for him. Summer is too hot. He must blend them both into a perfect fall and spring.
Commonly considered noise, Reggaeton's reputation is off to a bad start here in the States. Close-minded english-speaking people with maybe two years' worth of high school spanish under their belt are quick to reject this new genre. Reggaeton evolved from both Reggae and Jamaican Dancehall music. So, it's a dancing genre, like the waltz or salsa or tango. Because it's a dancing genre, the beat is the same tap-tap-bass in almost every song.more...
Most people discard the genre based on that fact alone. And that's just silly, seeing as the ever-popular bubble-gum pop has the same boom-boom-tap beat. Which, when you think about it, sounds pretty similar to the Reggaeton beat. And for you ravers out there who also balk at this genre: Drum-N-Bass? Trance? Happy Hardcore? Boom-hiss Boom-hiss. HULLO! Trance is just as repetitive in it's beats as Reggaeton. I listen to techno, and that beat in every song I realized actually helps me appreciate the music AND slip into the trance the music was designed to make me. Reggaeton's beat does the EXACT. SAME. THING.
Next: Lyrics. Yes, some of them are sexist and crude. But let's face it, this is America, we can't even listen to Christina Aguilera's "Dirrty" without getting our panties in a twist. Also, Ludacris, anyone? Yeah, his stuff's pretty nasty, too. But you guys still listen to him! Oh yeah, Ying Yang Twins, Lil' John, all those idiots rap about fucking drunk girls brains out, regardless, "Get Low" is still played at every high schoo...
