I hear a lot of people calling different shots "scoobies". It seems like they've heard someone say that and since it sounds kinda cool, they want to use it real bad hoping it makes them sound cool. I'm pretty sure most people using this term have no idea what a real scooby is.

An old-timer at one of the leagues I play in uses the term "squirrel on up there" when he wants the disc to slide up to the basket after grounding it too early.

I heard so many different shots called a "scooby" when I started playing that I never bothered to try to figure out what it really is.

Had my sister in law and my nephews in town last week. 8 and 10. Took them to the course a couple of times, they enjoyed it. Sent them home with some discs. But for the life of them they couldn't refrain from calling a putter "a putt."

"Is the Rhyno a putt?"

No, it's a putter!

"Should I throw a putt here?"

It's a PUTTER! Putt is what you do with it, putter is what it is.

Etc., etc. Drove me nuts.

I'm probably wrong, but that's what I call it when I turn the disc upside down, and slide it along the ground to get under an obstacle like a low-hanging bush or pine tree.

We always yell, "Get legs!" when disc turns into an unlikely roller.

I always liked "Get greasy" or VonDrehle's "Get Sneaky" when you want your disc to get through some trees or other obstacles.

The locals here say "nice shot" right before your disc hits the tree. Never did understand that one.
