Slip Slidin' Away

I decided to forgo the bottleneck onramp at 43rd St. and take my chances with Greenpoint Avenue bridge. I had just about reached the left turn onto McGuinness Boulevard. Just one Rav4 between me and easy sailing. The traffic coursed through the intersection. The light went yellow. As the Rav4 pulled out, I cut a hard left and shadowed the him on the driver's side. No problem. 'Boston slide.'

When I searched for 'Boston slide' later on the Internets, I couldn't find reference one. Reader, am I the only one who remembers this term for the classic Masshole driving move? (I do claim credit for a synonym, the 'moving pick' from RI days.)
