Fullback To School


I am intrigued by the notion that the Pelwecki project has become a Burns family effort.



  1. “Hi, we’re not football guys. We’re just working out at this football stadium and eavesdropping.”

    Intriguing indeed.

  2. Given the logo and so on, I am pretty sure these two are Trey Davis and Jaquon Case. Davis could be in Mfnrd visiting his parents, but why would The Don be there? I don’t remember if Trey played football, but with their shoulder and arm strength, high end basketball players can probably throw a football through a brick wall. But why are they there? Herk was on a nostalgia tour with his son, Wally was at the homecoming game with Bitsy, and Steve decided academics were not for him, but to paraphrase Gene Wilder’s Jim, what are a pair of dazzling urbanites such as these two doing in this bucolic setting?

  3. Son, why don’t you just go ahead and fetch us something to drink; we’ll keep your girlfriend here company while you’re gone…

  4. I feel a PED storyline coming on. Either that or some kind of bizarro romance between Pelwecki and Coach Burns. Either way, we lose.

  5. Yeah Vaganova you would think basketball players could throw a football or baseball. They’re great athletes we are told. But for every LeBron James who says he’s a football player, there are Derek Rose’s and others I’ve seen throw out the ceremonial first pitch who actually look like they could pass their ACT on their own with their nerdy pitches. It’s as if the only ball they ever picked up was a basketball, which is probably the case.

  6. Again, why do they need a Whole football field to practice handoffs?? You could do that anywhere. Shhessshh.

  7. As long as Heather has attained Professor status, it would only be apropos to further develop her newfound position by recreating a scene from Son of Flubber. And away we go

    “…Okay, dammit, Moose!!!!!!!! Keep that needle in your pads!!!!!!!!!! Last time, they ripped it right outta your crotch and you blew all over the field and we were forced to kick a 98-yard field goal. Thank God, I had a spare needle in my gym bag and I could blow up that pigskin when the refs weren’t looking. The defense is playing deep so the QB can throw you to a tight end on a screen pass play. We’ll chew up yardage big time. Then in the red zone, around the 1-yard line, if you prime the needle extra hard, you can literally fly over the defense to punch it in. My dad used to float in all the time when he was playing collegiate ball. I still got his needle.”

  8. If Heather is The Professor, does that make Pelwecki Gilligan?

    Today’s post forthcoming.
