SAT vocabulary in a sports column???

A good new word is temerity. I was reading a sports writers description of the Sunday night football game and he used that word. It’s surely a good SAT word and to see it written in a news story made me happy. So, what does it mean? It means boldness or audacity. In this case the sports writer, Jason Keidel, was measuring the temerity of two different sports teams and came to the conclusion that the winner had more of it. It takes temerity to use an SAT level vocabulary word in a sports column. GOOD WORK!!!
