    I use that one still.

    Sometimes I'll also employ "circuit."

    I miss the words 'nimble' and 'fleet-footed'...or anything else that sounds like Keith Jackson would say during a broadcast

    Used to, you couldn't read a hockey gamer without the word "nifty" being used to describe someone's dexterous shot or save.

    I have used nifty a time or two in soccer gamers to describe passes that led to goals. As in, "Jones slipped a nifty backheel pass into the box as Smith raced in from the right wing."
