Six practices are all it took for a group of aging business men to come together under one motivational coach. Imagine having him for a month in the spring and then for an entire season? You just can’t say enough about the power of that wee little man. Two bowls in a row now folks! I propose paying Dr. Lou to give the pep talks before, during and as needed. There should be a recorded CD of Lou yelling or instilling motivation so that Corwin can play it on the sideline at will. Or an animatronic version that grabs facemasks and kicks footballs in furious fits–we could feed it with hand-picked grass. From a Ron Israel interception, then onto a Goolsby interception and return, to a Hasbrook safety; defense was again key for the Irish Legends of the past. Look for all of the drug stores to be out of Icy Hot as these players have undoubtably used up the national ration.
The game will be replayed tomorrow at 2:50 EST. Here’s the link for you to copy: http://www.livestream.com/nippontv.
