That makes some sort of literal sense at least.  Sports terminology gets a pass in a way - it doesn't have to be "correct".

God, it's f*%king infuriating to me - even worse than "ratchet up".  I've been trying to discourage people from using that cliche for years - I've given up.  In addition, it means whatever is being referred to would have a short life span and it's usually used to refer to some celebrity who would later go on to enjoy massive success.  Most people who use it probably don't even know they're referring to a heavenly body.

Dude!

“. . . a new and valuable addition has been made to the slang vocabulary. … We refer to the term “Dood.” For a correct definition of the expression the anxious inquirer has only to turn to the tight-trousered, brief-coated, eye-glassed, fancy-vested, sharp-toes shod, vapid youth who abounds in the Metropolis at present."

Sounds like a modern-day "hipster".
