Repeat after me: penultimate simply means the next to the last. It is not an intensifier equivalent to “awesome”. It is a fun word, but so is blunderbuss, and one wouldn’t say “that was one blunderbuss of a game”. I know words change, but this kind of change has to stop. I guess I’m being obese over it because it is irksome.
