from the german word "blitzkrieg", meaning lightning (a very offensive-minded war strategy developed by the germans in WW2 that advocated quick control of your enemy's territory through fast and violent military bombardment; usually combining land and air attacks).

Used in football terminology to denoted a defensive play in which many defensive players are used to try and break through the offensive line (the line protecting the quarterbacks and running backs). A Blitz usually leaves the defence vulnerable to passing plays, but it also cuts down on the time the quarterback has to throw the ball (it's main purpose is to put pressure on the quarterback or sack the quarterback).
The defence really got good penetration on that blitz.

Totally out of it; usually weed and alcohol related, but can also be from a lack of sleep or something that happened.

Usually invokes a feeling of separation from life, like you're the only one and everyone else is moving around you. Time usually seems warped, and stupid things are suddenly hilarious.
Dude.. me and some buddies got some weed, we were so blitzed!

I can't do this test, I didn't get enough sleep so I'm totally blitzed.

Don't bother talking to Frederick, that chick asked him out and he's blitzing.

the counter to the "Shotty" rule, a mad dash for the front seat of a vehicle, when two persons are in competition for the front passenger seat and the first person calls "Shotty" the second person can call "Blitz" (one may call shotty no-blitz to prevent the blitz rule from being valid)
"Shotty!"
"Blitz" (both dash for car)

Someone who is cursed and always misses the best stuff. To become the blitz you must stray from your group of friends.
Dude! You missed it! One of the beer pipes broke so there was free beer for everyone! Sorry, but I guess you are the new blitz.
