New Sports Talk NotWord: Hyperbosity

No Comments

While I was driving to lunch, I turned on ESPN radio when two sports jocks were discussing some now-long-forgotten topic, but one interchange stands out even after the topic has been forgotten.

Sports jock number one complained about "hyperbole" on a certain sports topic.  A few minutes later, his partner lamented the "hyperbosity" in sports talk.

Now, I’m assuming sports jock number two was combining hyperbole and verbosity.

So, there you go, a new NotWord–hyperbosity.
