A smattering of applause for Josh... I'd call that a smattering.

Smatter is of those words you only use with applause. You don't say, "Will there be a smattering of snow, do you think?"

Applause was louder after he struck out.

He's clearly still in our back pocket!

You are right... However.. It's a great word... I'm on a mission to use the word in different yet appropriate context.

Well, Kris Johnson gave up a smattering of runs for Rochester ..... like 6 in 3.2.  The score is now 8-4 in the middle of the 5th

If we win or lose this game, in the long run, it doesn't smatter.

"A Smattering of Intelligence " is one of my favorite M*A*S*H episodes (2nd season finale).

 

I think I'll amuse myself for the rest of the season by throwing in M*A*S*H trivia as many times as I can in game threads.

I'm wrong though.  He gave up 6 but the score is still only 6-4 not 8-4.

 

OOPS.

I'm actually enjoying the comments on Sinker's "Section 219 Fan's Focus Mob":
