It is a rich tradition of many half-assed sportswriters to write jaunty columns full of specialized jargon of origins unknown. This document is here to clear up mgoblog's unfortunate predilection for this vice.

Acker (v): To do something so mindbogglingly badly that people wonder whether you should be mercy-killed. Origin of term. Sentence: "Boy, Jim Herrmann sure ackered the Ohio State and Texas games."

Hulkster (n.) - an offensive lineman, esp. one who is extremely good or suspected of being on steroids and having silly facial hair. Example: Kyle Turley. Origin of term. Sentence: "Returning hulkster Jake Long should be an All-American candidate by the end of the year."
