Your RBR Word of the Day:Lionize

New, comment

lionize \LY-uh-nyz\, transitive verb:
To treat or regard as an object of great interest or importance.

We must be careful to avoid lionizing an incoming recruit, no matter what his star rating, as "the next great" before he even gets a chance to prove it on the field.
