Greetings, team 62629X here, I had a question about where the MOGO lift term came from or just why its called that.
MOGO is short for MObile GOal. The lift parts comes from the fact that it lifts the goal up.
MOGO = mobile goal
MOGO lift = any mechanical device intended to raise the mobile goal off the ground
It’s definitely not the end-all origin, but mogo gained a lot of popularity during In The Zone, a game that also involved mobile goals, and that terminology just carried over.
although, seeing as all goals in this game are mobile, referring to them simply as goals is easier (fewer syllables). mogo is widely used and accepted term though.
just please don’t call them MOBO
But goals is harder to say than mogo. Try it and see. There’s more to ease of speech than syllable counting. For goals you have to change your mouth shape in a vowel: go-uhl.
why is there not a dislike button
