redboard
 v.— «Now, you say, “stop redboarding, Bill?” (For those of you unfamiliar with the term, a “redboarder” is a person who always sounds really smart explaining why a horse won a race, but never manages to have a bet on the winner). After all, when a stock goes down, the convertible is supposed to work out better than the stock, right?» —“History of the Ciena 3.75 percent Convertible” by Bill Feingold Schaeffer’s Research Mar. 1, 2007.
