Word of the Day: hooroosh

What's "the word I'm thinking of"? Today, it's...

hooroosh [who-ROOSH] (noun)

An uproar, a great fuss

"What a hooroosh aloft there! I would e'en take it for sublime, did I not know that the colic is a noisy malady."
--Herman Melville, Moby-Dick

Near where I work in Newark, there's quite a hooroosh on Wednesday afternoons: a huge outdoor karaoke party, complete with a stage and concert amplification. The Otis Redding manqué (look that up!) I saw one week hit most of the notes.

Expect lots of hooroosh tomorrow about the Big Game.
