FriDay in Football

Graham Harrell says there's a "great chance" coach Mike Leach leaves Texas Tech. Leach took himself out of consideration for Washington, so the front-runner would be Auburn. I'm not sure how the Auburn faithful are going to take to a character like Leach....

Louisville must be worse than I imagined. They were completely dismantled by Rutgers (specifically quarterback Mike Teel who had a 447-yard, seven touchdown outing) 63-14. On second thought, apparently Rutgers finished 6-0 after a 1-5 start. Ah, fuck it, I don't pay attention to New Jersey for a reason.

James Sheep, Penn State fursuit enthusiast, will be suspended from the Rose Bowl after being pulled for a DUI. If we labeled our posts here at Action Football!, the tag would be something along the lines of "who gives a shit." Why did I write about it, you ask? DON'T ASK QUESTIONS!

Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce will meet with investigators concerning his part in the Plaxico Burress Shot Himself in the Thigh Variety Hour. Pierce claims he didn't know Burress was armed; presumably until Burress shot himself and then Pierce drove back to his home in New Jersey with the gun in the glove compartment of his whip....

Junior Seau's back with the New England Patriots. Every time Seau's name comes up, I'm reminded of what a dick move it was to "retire" from the woeful Miami Dolphins only to sign a contract with the Patriots, like, two days later. For shame, Junior Seau. For shame.

O.J. Simpson is going to the pokey for at least nine years (the earliest he'd be eligible for parole in his "up to 33 years" sentence). Well, I guess the Judiciary Branch's motto isn't "Fool me once, shame on you..." for nothing. That is the motto, right?

With a soundtrack!

Yes. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, you get seven minutes in heaven with Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It's carved above the door to the Supreme Court.

Alright. I'm going to leave aside my simmering anger over the absence of the 'chester sound effects on the podcasts to make this public comment. Buddy, you got some 'splainin' to do!

Regular listeners know of 'chester's wish for no ACC team to end the year ranked (which was extinguished by GT, VT, and BC). Now. I believe EVERY ACC team has a very good chance to beat their opponents in the bowls they have been invited to. So, lets get it!! Go ACC!! Invite West Virginia to join the conference!!

See ya at 42md

Here's my 'splanation: I've gotta leave something for the second season....

When we're in the doldrums of the football off-season, I plan on listening back on all the episodes to pull all sorts of hilarity that can be incorporated into a churched up themesong and/or in-podcast shenanigans.

2009 motherfuckers!
