    Trickeration

    This just annoys me. Why does Jesse Palmer and other announcers insist on saying Trickeration. Come on people it isn't even a word.

    You're right, it's not a word. I wish more people knew that there was a word to describe what they want. It's called trickery.

    According to Urban Dictionary, this is why:

    1. Trickeration
    A fictitious word commonly used by football announcers to make themselves feel intelligent. When the word they actually mean to say is: Trickery. But we all know that most announcers never learned anything in school and just focused on football all day long.
    Football Announcer: That play was just filled with trickeration!

    TV announcer: Doesn't he mean to say Trickery?
    Urban Dictionary: trickeration

    Re: Trickeration

    It's sort of like "disorientated" or "utilized". You are looking for disoriented and used. It doesn't make you smarter to add extraneous syllables to words.

    Re: Trickeration

    I hate this word.

    So much.

    But my favorite announcer line of the day was from the military bowl:

    "Don't go to the kitchen, Pam!"

    Thank you... Utilize actually has a meaning, which is essentially "to give a value to something that it previously did not possess." Quite different from use, as you know. And some of the most pernicious violators in misusing (misutilizing?) utilize are academics who should know better.

    Excuse me now.. I need to utilize the bathroom.

    We'll be hearing it Friday.

    Jesse Palmer and Craig James to announce our game. I'm fine with this.
