fade
 n.— «Instead, from the LSU 21, Boeckman aimed a soft, lobbed pass, a “fade” as it is called for the left end zone corner, where Robiskie, possessor of perhaps the most trustworthy hands on the team, had beaten Jackson.» —“Ohio State football team has more ghosts in its closet” by Bill Livingston Plain Dealer (Cleveland, Ohio) Jan. 8, 2008.
