So, as Billy pointed out in comments yesterday, Bobby may not be the swiftest of equipment managers. Although, to be fair, Rob noted that what Bobby was saying was good advice. Regardless, as just about everyone has pointed out, his people skills are continuing to get him closer and closer to a confrontation in record time. I am eager to see what happens tomorrow as Kaz’s exploding eyeball surely foreshadows excitement to come.

Do people still say ‘take a chill pill’? I have to imagine that I am somewhere around Kaz’s age if not a bit older and that one’s pretty dated. Maybe the kids these days have brought it back. Who can say? Surely, not I.



  1. “Take a chill pill” may be anachronistic, but the syndicate wouldn’t let Rubin say “Shut the fuck up.” And I still see swirlys and wedgies in Bobby’s future, but now the coaches will be in on the action.

  2. Distracted, muttering to himself, forgetful, oblivious to the opposite sex, disheveled loose-tie appearance; dear me, how could we have been so blind? People, don’t you see it?

    Look at his eyes and that goofy grin: Bobby is higher than a kite! Stoned to the bejezuz!

    Kaz, dear God no! What Bobby does not need is another pill!

  3. I think lighten up Francis would work better here. And what’s with the constant smile on Bobby’s face? Reminds of the smiley kid in the 1955 classic”The Blackboard Jungle”. Now that’s dated!

  4. Speaking of dated, Kaz is getting ready to break out his “Talk to the hand!”

  5. Yes he is. I just heard somebody say that the other night. My word!

  6. Ah Jive turkey, ”The Blackboard Jungle” back when Jamie Farr was Jamal Farr playing a “bubble gum bandit” aka “drugstore cowboy”…Daddyo, that dates us eh…

    Slang and changes over time–“bummer” was/is one of my favorite words…in 1988 my son told me that “bummer” was out like my jacked up over the calf socks….now in 2015 I hear folks using “bummer” again…nothing new but the old…

    some words have changed meaning drastically over time like “hook up”, “gay”, & “burner”, for instance

  8. Howry is approaching the bar-setting level of unrealistic precociousness of Doyle Dane or Knox Foley.

  9. There simply are things we should not say, and I blame myself for this outcome. All fall I was rejoicing that we had a great football story going with suspense and even some realism, but my mistake was to say it was so much better than the junior professional stories of Doyle Dane and Knox Foley. This is my fault, that we are being subjected to a kid who imagines he is Adolph Rupp reincarnated.
