[QUOTE=Nibus]w00t = 'we own other team' (apparently) but much nicer in the same sense as 'woo!'
I'm not sure this is accurate. I recently did some linguistic research and got into the history of W00t. Actually, there's an awesome article in Wikipedia talking all about W00t. Some salient exerpts:
The term "w00t" is a slang interjection used to express happiness or excitement, usually over the Internet.
"w00t" is an exclamation of excitement, which cannot be used sarcastically. Because Internet text-based chat cannot communicate the vocal subtleties of spoken word, such as sarcasm, word choice can be very important to the clarity of a message. "Whoo-hoo", "yay", "hooray", and other words similar to "w00t" could all be used with sarcastic intent ("I have a dentist's appointment today. Yay."), whereas "w00t" would always be interpreted as a genuine expression of excitement ("I have a dentist's appointment today. w00t!").
"We Owned the Other Team", is a backronym of w00t.
In other words, it's not the origin of the expression, but a retroactive expansion of a word that was not originall an acronym.
Apparently it originated from the songs "Whoomp there it is" and "Whoot there it is" which both appeared in 1993 and topped the charts (thankfully for a brief period of time)...

I am depressed that so many people don't know what an acronym is
Acronym /= abbreviation
