spin
 v.— «To keep the fewest people irate at any one time, Barsotti, who has been an agent for seven years, has rules: “Don’t make commitments early, don’t spin late.” Spin, at the track, means renege on a deal.» —“The Agent: The Need To Talk a Good Game” by Liz Hafalia San Francisco Chronicle Aug. 27, 1993.
