Spiller Pokes The Choker

Filed under: actual action, football, Marty Moon — nedryerson @ 3:27 am

This concludes the second game of the season at Kettering. Kettering tried to get fancy with a sweep but there was the games unsung hero, Steve Lehto, again to sniff it out and finish off the drive that had just started on the recovery of QB Tevin Claxton’s fumble. Marty Moon finishes doing something (opening a pill bottle?) while he concludes his broadcast to three listeners.

After the game, the real drama resumes. Tevin Claxton had a history of choking in JV, or so we heard earlier from Boyd Spiller. It looks like ol’ Boyd is there to remind Tevin of this and needle his quarterback about his almost costly fumble in this game. Well done, Boyd. You’ve solidified your role as this season a-hole newcomer.

Heather Burns Twitter feed has remained silent. Maybe she’s only going to work home games. Who needs a media strategy?


  1. Fumbling while getting hit is not “choking”. Why this strip didn’t show him missing an open receiver or throwing a bad interception in crunch time is beyond me. That would make sense, so guess that’s why it didn’t happen.

  2. P 4: “….fuck you, motherfuckin punk-ass bitch…. The only thing that gags around here is your mom on everyone’s cock….”

  3. 1. Wow… And Gilberto’s bacon gets pulled out the fire by an unknown player we haven’t even been introduced to yet! How many times has THIS happened??

    1a. And I guess the rest of this week’s strips are going to be Heather Tafoya calling Gilberto a “coaching mastermind” despite him almost pissing away another sure win.

    2. Claxton: “How about you learn to put a block on somebody and actually drive them **beyond** the motherfuckin’ line of scrimmage for once instead of getting ragdolled all over the field, you sawed-off runt!! You remember that #96 who was whuppin’ your ass all night? Well, he spent his summer in a magical place that turns boys into men called a ‘weight room’! I know you’ve heard of it and have been at least once, but a lot of the folks we’ll be playing against this season WENT THERE ALL THE TIME!! You know, I seen drunken prom dates put up a better fight than you did!!”

    2a. But seriously, as a leader and team captain Mr. Claxton will want to nip this shit in the bud right away… Yeah, folks can kid around and make comments in jest, but sooner or later Mr. Spiller is going to cross a line.

    3. Who was I cheering for in that dumb Tampa Bay/New England game? I was cheering for God to open up the Earth so that stadium and everyone inside would have perished in fiery torment… Then I would have been rid of TWO major annoyances for good.

    4. And while I have no love whatsoever for the Dodgers, something is very very wrong when an 88-win team gets a ticket to the postseason and a 106-win team has to deal with a one-game crapshoot…

  4. …and that 88-win team will do what they always do…get their asses kicked in the first round…that’s what happens to teams that don’t have Gil’s luck….they get exposed early and often

  5. I’m surprised that’s not a fumble in P1 too, the way the ball seems to be resting on top of the ball carrier’s forearm and wrist.

  6. Is P3 one of those Lifesavers Moments?

    “Damn, I almost choked another one away.”
    “I agree, but have a Lifesavers anyway.”
