razzle
 n.— «One after another, the bombs ripped through the nets, and when you came up for air as the game was ending, Captain Kirk had 34 points in only 24 minutes—21 in the fourth quarter. Spread that over a full regulation game, and that’s a 68-point rate.…Seems the Washington Wizards are as embarrassed as they are embarrassing.…We’ve seen some real rockhead acts in sports, but never something as imbecilic as a Washington Wizard talking trash after a bad loss. A Washington Wizard shouldn’t even talk trash after a victory, given the track record and sickly uniforms of a franchise so comical that it transformed the ultimate champion, Michael Jordan, into a loser.…”We got razzled,” said Wizards center Brendan Haywood.» —“While Wizards talk, Bulls shut up and play” by Jay Mariotti Chicago Sun-Times Apr. 28, 2005.
