Three Flags Up is a local variant of the game "Three Flies Up" played on schoolyards in Cayucos, California. The game consits of one or more "throwers" who toss a foam rubber ball into the air to a team of three or more "flaggers". If the ball is caught then the catcher recieves a "flag"(point). Once a flagger recieves three flags, they get to become a thrower, or in games with multiple throwers, they get to choose which thrower they want to replace. If the flagger drops the ball, then the ball is still in play and whoever recovers it gets a flag. Moreover, the flagger who dropped the ball has to take the "walk of shame", where he stands facing a wall and the flagger who recoverd the ball gets to thow it at any part of their body, except the head. The flagger who is throwing the ball may choose just to hit the wall instead of the player. A caught ball may also be wrestled away from the catcher at any time up until the catcher is ready to throw it, thus stealing the flag for oneself. The most comon type of ball used is a foam rubber football, however conceivably any ball of a relative softness can be used.
Ah man I hate playing three flags up!
Zingage is a term for anything that is a nice play in sports. For example, if Vince Carter hits a 3 Pointer in a NBA 2K1 game that you are playing, you may say zingage to exclamate his three point precision.
Ray Allen for three . . . zingage!
Basketball games where everyone is scoring on their own part, and not for a team. The object of the game is to get exactly 21 points, not under, or over. The game can go by extremely slow or extremely fast depending on who you're playing against and what rules you're using.more...
The break is the opening shot that a person calls to take and is worth three points. He will shoot this shot from either the three point or free throw line with no one guarding him. The ball goes into play as soon as it is released from his fingetrips.
Some extra rules that people like to play with to make the game more fun include tipping, tip zones, street ball, and poison.
Tipping is when one player shoots the ball in an attempt to score. The shooter must have missed the shot and another, opposing, player catches the ball in mid-air while his feet are off the ground and makes the shot which the other player missed. When this has happened, the player who made the basket sends the person who originally shot the ball back down to 13, 0, or out of the game (depending on what that player has and what rules you're playing by).
Tip zones are basically the amount of points you have when you were tipped. If you had above 13 points when you were tipped, then you would be sent back down to 13. If you had 13 or less points when you were tipped, you would be sent down to zero. (Optional Rule) If you had zero when you got tipped, you would be eliminated from the game until it ended. The rul...
To be stuck in a tight space, especially when driving a vehicle on a narrow passage or street. The phrase is a play on the word "mired," and refers to a scene from "Austin Powers," in which the title character, portrayed by Mike Myers, is driving a golf cart down the narrow corridor of an industrial building and becomes impossibly jammed in a sideways manner. More specifically, to be "mike myered" is to attempt a three-point turn in a vehicle, only to find that the space is too narrow and requires a turn of four, five, six or more points.
As we were leaving the graduation party, I took a wrong turn, but when I tried to pull a quick U-turn I got mike myered between all the cars parked on the street.
the punishment for the losing party in a basketball competition, such as 21, whereby the player must bend over with his hands on the pole of the basket and his backside facing the court, in order that the winning parties, standing at the top of the three-point arc, might repeatedly peg him in the backside with the basketball. Generally, the outright winner of the contest will be awarded the highest number of pegs, the second-place finisher the second-highest number, and so on. This mode of the game ensures that play will remain competitive, even for those with no hopes of actually winning, but simply trying at all costs to avoid a pegging. The term can also replace "21" and be used as the name of the game itself.
Player 1: Aiight, we playin' booty greens.

Player 3: Yeaaaah, bitch! Your booty gonna be green.
Player 2: I'm just gonna go home.
casual gamers make up the silent majority of computer and console game players that:
1, use pc and console games as a means of socializing or to connect with friends rather than as an achievement or to further their reputation as a skillful game player.
2, are by definition inferior in skill to any hardcore gamer.
3, do not play casual games.
4, play mainly console based games due to their ease of setup and "plug & play" capabiliy.
5, inherently feel a need to confront hardcore gamers due to their own inferior skills and the hardcore gamers inherent need to prove victorious.
Any casual gamer that successfully challenges a hardcore gamer is not a casual gamer, but a hardcore gamer in denial.
Obviousy, all gamers are bound by the desire to win at any given game, there would be no point to any game if that were not true, but the over-riding desire to connect with other individuals, be it close friends or distant aquaintances define the casual gamer.
Hardcore gamers have a generally negative, and often derogatory view of casual gamers, looked upon as the plauge of the video game industry. While hardcore gamers are in the minority of gamers they provide an invaluable resource to developers on both the hardware and software end. Without the hardcore gamers passion and dedication to the art, we would not have the quality games that are available today.
Since the purchase power of the casual gamer determines what becomes a best seller, it is understandable why the hardcore gamer has such contempt for the group.
