Phrase perfected by Marv Albert, referring to a basketball game in which the winning team's lead is so great, that the mere phrase "garbage time" does not do it justice. This is the part of the game where both teams have emptied their benches and are playing out the clock, but even more so than in just conventional "garbage time."
Marv Albert: "And we are now in extensive garbage time. The Knicks lead the Bulls 127 to 40."
