Thinking Long-Term? Is That Even Allowed?

Filed under: actual action, football, Gil Thorp, Just plain sad — timbuys @ 7:35 am


P1: “But don’t worry, even though you’re totally ineffective, you’ll still get snaps for some reason.”

P2: Super Moon! How topical!

P3: Again, Hakeem’s form looks terrible.

Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone!



    Heather Harbaugh: Points out a painfully obvious strategic deficiency in the gameplan that opposing teams are consistently starting to exploit (illustrated with video, no less)…

    Gilberto and his assistants: HOLY CHRIST YOU’RE RIGHT, HEATHER!!! HOW DID WE NOT SEE THIS BEFORE? (By the way, you won’t be getting any snaps anymore because a JV TE is about take your spot…

    Friday Night: Evidently Gilberto forgot what Heather said already, since he’s DOING THE SAME EXACT THING AS BEFORE WITH THE SAME REQUISITE RESULTS… Naturally, he’ll try to blame Heather/Kevin/Hakeem to try and save face.

    Christ, what an asshole.

  2. Once that bottle of Woodford is demolished –err… I mean once Thanksgiving is over, then gift-giving will be upon us. What to get that special someone; what to get…(?)

    Hakeem and his statuesque pose brings to mind those special gifts every boy wanted. Why, I’m talking about the Schaper Super Jock toy series! While Super Toe is the dog-teaser we all remember fondly, Super Touch is closer to Hakeem’s classic form.

    Could they maybe try a lateral over to Heather and have her chuck it? No, let’s run the same damn thing over and over and over

  3. The outcome does seem to show this play was a bad idea. But I doubt very much that bringing up the JV player is going to be the end of the story. HE the TE still has a significant role to play, if perhaps not at TE. She’s too skilled and too knowledgeable not to play. And unless the first two weeks of the story were a pointless diversion, Kevin Palooka will be in the middle of whatever happens, too.

  4. Speaking of Moon, in the 40+ years that I’ve been a Gil Thorp junkie, I never thought I’d see the day when the Moon(planet) would utter just as many scathing comments as the other Moon(Marty), primarily about Coach T, within the span of a month.
    And what is Gil trying to pull in P2? C’mon, Thorp, EVERYBODY knows about her. Trying to sneak a rhinoceros past security is not an option. If you’re thinking long-term, give Beaudry a chance and send Heather to another dimension where Coach Shaw raises his family.
    “There she is!!!!!!!!! The one in the Bozo suit!!!!!!!!!!! Watch her screen right!!!!!!!!!!! Matt, you run the blitz!!!!!!!!!!”

  5. How about this: put Heather in the game, let ’em blitz, and set up a screen pass on the other side of the field?

    But hey, what do I know, I’m not a genius small-town football coach.
