sea-gulling
 v.— «The final few yards is elbowing, sand-spraying pandemonium, as contestants dive headfirst, grapple, and fight for batons, sometimes waiting to let others grasp and miss before making their move. “Sea-gulling,” one competitor calls it, a reference to sea gulls hanging back from the pack to snatch overlooked French fries off the boardwalk.» —by Peter Genovese The Jersey Shore Uncovered Oct. 1, 2003.
