Rogers describes "meeching"

by Unknown at 4:52 PM

Todd Rogers, master of digs and (re)definitionsTodd Rogers, a notable master of bending word definitions - "grovel", for instance - blogs about his and Phil Dalhausser's streak-ending "meeching" at the hands of fellow Olympians Gibb-Rosenthal yesterday.

Meech (Rogers) v.

To crush, work, destroy and utterly beat down.

Mich (Webster's) v.

To lie hid; to skulk; to act, or carry one's self, sneakingly. [Obs. or Colloq.] [Written also meach and meech.]

Weird. Sounds a lot like grovelling. But hey, if you're the world's best at something, I guess it's well within your right to introduce your own vocabulary. He is The Professor, after all.
