SPORTS!

interjection Other
What you yell when you do/attempt something even remotely athletic in a non-athletic situation. It can be sarcastic if someone does something unathletic or fails at doing something athletic.
 
Examples: - Jackson threw his used water bottle in the trashcan from the chair he was sitting at and everyone around him yelled: “SPORTS!”. - Vineel miraculously caught an orange that someone threw across the commons, so everyone around him yelled: “SPORTS!”. The origin of SPORTS! is from advisor training for Wiess college O-Week. We had to fill out a personality test by ranking words in groups of 5 per row of how well the word fits you. At the end each person was assigned one of five colors which described the personality. All the words described a certain trait, i.e. studious, outgoing, energetic. Half-way down the questionnaire, one of the words was just “SPORTS!”, everybody thought this very funny, because it did not fit in with all the other words at all. The personality color associated with SPORTS! was orange. This led to people using “orange” synonymous to SPORTS!. This term is only used by people who were fellows for Wiess college O-Week 2019.
Etymology : N/A
