Citations for sitzmark
These Winter Olympics have been awfully confusing for American fans. Our anointed hero, Bode "I Am a Rebel and I Said So on 60 Minutes" Miller, has thus far left a giant sitzmark on the Italian Alps.
“One ski stuck in the mush, I crossed them and that was it,” he explained, as he brushed himself off after making his sitzmark.
Origin of sitzmark
Sitzmark derives from the German sitzen meaning "to sit." It entered English in the 1930s.
