i'm a gamer, playing online games like World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XI, and woot is a term for celebration or exctiment.
in sports it is actually an acronym (hope i spelt that right) that gets shout out, cause it's easier to go
"We Own the Other Team!!!"

it was whoomp there it is by tag team in the early nineties... amil says WOOP WOOP, i just checked the lyrics online... furthermore...
Woot originated as a hacker term for root (or administrative) access to a computer. However, with the term as coincides with the gamer term, "w00t".
"w00t" was originally an trunicated expression common among players of Dungeons and Dragons tabletop role-playing game for "Wow, loot!" Thus the term passed into the net-culture where it thrived in video game communities and lost its original meaning and is used simply as a term of excitement.
"I defeated the dark sorcerer! Woot!"
"woot! i r teh flagmastar!" (Think Tribes)
"Woot, I pwnzed this dude's boxen!'
but this was just a curious lil question i had as to why woot was used... as usualy it has blossomed into something beautiful... not really but its all good playa's, and i apologize to you ronny if this off topic thing really bothers you
