icing
 n.— «Westwood, a 16-year CFL veteran, is one of a number of pros who think calling a timeout hoping to disrupt a kicker’s concentration—commonly called “icing”—is among the most overrated tactics in pro football. The problem is, many kickers think “icing” them helps them kick better.» —“CFL kickers: Hold the ice” by Morgan Campbell Toronto Star (Canada) Nov. 5, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
