Pete De Windt: Sloppy Hog

Filed under: actual action, football, Steve Boone — nedryerson @ 3:41 am


The rain soaked game continues. It’s all ponchos and slop. Is that line coach Steve Boone barking out to his lineman, aka hogs, to slug it out in the slop? Hogs do enjoy slop. You know who really loves him some slop? TE Pete De Windt! He loves slippin’ and slidin’ in the slop and throwing big, explosive blocks so that Milford can move, sloppily. Stay sloppy, Pete!

Edited to add: I can’t believe I missed the chance to throw in a few obscure pop culture references. First, I could have used the Devo song Sloppy (I Saw My Baby Getting) and second, the Frank Zappa line: Is that a real poncho or a Sears poncho? Oh well, I still get paid the same. (Also, there is really no decent video for the Devo song. They didn’t make a proper video for the song and all of the live ones on Youtube look and/or sound like crap.)



  1. I sure hope it’s Line Coach Steve Boone. Ain’t nobody else doing any coaching around here. Gil’s just standing there in his poncho letting his mind wander. Probably got a flask full of Irish coffee in his back pocket, looking for a chance to take another swig.

  2. Which one is Gil? Looks like twins with matching scars on right cheek. If that is line coach what’s his name I have no respect for him. Take of the poncho you pud ! Bud Grant wouldn’t wear one.

  3. Major kudos to the fellow in the crowd in panel 1, second from the left, who appears to be trying to keep the rain off of his head with a sheet of something… possibly a newspaper.

    While other unprepared fans just went home, he stuck it out and got soaked. He can tell his grandkids that HE WUZ THERE when Steve Boone gestured dramatically and Pete De Windt threw “the block”, with only an oversized game program keeping his eyes dry enough to see.

  4. Now I will be humming Camarillo Brillo all day long… “Well, I was born to have adventure, so I just followed up the steps…”

    Bonus plate of shrimp: The real Pete De Windte is based out of Camarillo.

  5. timbuys, lots of Zappa stuff is in my head, but as far as melodies go, it’s a wash. I could hum Peaches En Regalia if I really had to.

  6. Man, bring me back to the days of Berrill when Gil’s hair stood the elements from his overspraying of VO5, short of a tsunami. Even in an unforgiving downpour, you could spot that Great Wall of Hair, like a beacon in a snowstorm and at any angle or distance. From afar, his statuesque scalp stood out among the mortals. That hairline will be on a totem pole one day. NOW, the setting has all the trappings of a washed-up coach(P1) who couldn’t cut it in a football-crazy state like Alabama so he’s banished to Alaska to cheer on the troops, his Aleut assistants in the background, parkas and all, patiently scoping the scene, the whole atmosphere shortly before The Freeze. Hold that tiger.

  7. […] Steve Boone, Milford’s line coach making his second appearance this fall. He was yelling at sloppy hogs a few weeks ago when we thought The Secret Pelwecki was going to be all the rage. Now that […]

  8. […] De Windt saw a lot of action last year. He was the starting TE at the periphery of the Heather Burns story. He was part of a double play combo with Barry Bader. […]
