1. verb. The process of throwing a sporting ball, such as a football or mandarin, to a forewarned but nevertheless unsuspecting workmate, teammate or stranger (but never spouse or pet). An initiator, termed a ‘sportor’, expresses their desire to instigate ‘sport’ by firmly stating “Sport!”, usually preceded by the name of the recipient, termed a 'sportee'.

Note: To have succeeded at sport is to catch the sported object; to fail is to be struck unflatteringly or critically by said sported object.
