Am not trying to hijack this thread, but I’ve heard a nationally known sports talking head use the word “effort” as a verb, e.g., “he efforted” or “they were efforting” to do such and such. I almost ran off the road when I heard this. I now change the channel or turn the radio off when he comes on.
