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."
