Given that the Olympics are on, I thought I'd play with the word "sport." It's a versatile word. You probably don't care what part of speech each use is, so I won't torment you with that.
However, whether you know the parts of speech or not, you can:
  • play or be a sport.
  • sport a mustache or a fancy coat
  • wear sport clothes or go sport fishing
  • make sport with another person (make fun of or tease)
  • sport (frolic or gambol) if you're a child or animal.

And, if you're a British university student, you can sport your oak, which means that you keep your door closed to indicate that you don't want visitors.

So with all of that you have a sporting good chance of sporting your new vocabulary at the next party.
