2008 THANKSGIVING FOOTBALL CHATTER
Paul: ok folks, who's in? we gotta do it up right this year, i am healed up, so we gotta have some fun with da football..........as katie said, she gotta trick play, so we gotta be there and be ready for anything. is scott coming, brian do you know? ok....let me hear ya from ya...who's in and who aint? Captains?
Renee and Cam? Nichole and Jill? Katie and Paul? Brian and Dustin? what you all think...chime in...get your game faces on...it's GO TIME..peeps...
take no prisoners! let the trash-talkin' begin!!!!!!!!! It ain't just a boy's game this year no matter how cold!!!
Katie: Watch out you wussy's, prepare to be spanked!!!
Dustin: Like the historical Spokane snow game, I'll be playing gimp-style again (achilles not fully healed yet), but that won't stop me from whipping up on your sorry little Lindberg butts. Game on...
Brian: Ok folks! As I type I am literally drooling over the fact that we are already talking about thanksgiving football: Aniya-, Bella-, and Scott-with-a-bread-roll-in-his-hand-style (yeah, it's getting serious over here)! So yeah, how many of those born in the 70s & 80s are playing this year? Hopefully it'll be at least 4-on-4 this time - that Spokane Snow Bowl in aught-six was sure memorable! I can certainly fill in as all-time-QB if we have uneven teams, if necessary. All of those Krispy Kreme doughnuts at my last job certainly have paid off! And speaking of Krispy Kremes, oh yes, Scott will be there. Just kidding little buddy! Watch out, though; he's been spotted pumpin' the iron these days...! That reminds me: Dibs! He's on my team! So, I'm personally calling out (in alphabetical order) Cam, Dustin, Jill, Katie, Paul, Scott, and Stephen out! Anyone else that wants to play is more than welcome [to be called out, too]! Oh, and in this one, the biggest loser really IS "the biggest loser!"
Paul: The only spankin' will be when we mop up the wet grass with your sorry butts as we kick the ever-lovin' **** outta the other team. Take no prisoners this year. Heck, it'll be more competitive than the Apple Cup this year.
Paul: Oh, how sweet it will be to send the losers home, muddy, bruised and wills completely broken. If there aint tears on the field this year, then we aren't tackling hard enough. Hopefully Papa Jon will turn out again to run ragged over the swiss-cheese defense.
Paul: Hmmm..the "call out." Brian has thrown the gauntlet down. Who is man, or woman, enough to pull on the spikes, pull up the jock and get their lazy butts offa the couch and into the fray? I'll be there...along with it sounds like a rock-solid Scott, a Krispy Kreme Brian and a gimpy Dustin. I've sleeked down some, but prol still can't keep up with all my younger cousins. Katie and Jill, assuming they aren't great with another child, should be in tip-top shape. Then there's Stephen ... watch out for this guy. He's my sleeper pick. Of course, it would be nice to see our 250-pound fullback Papa Jon out there again...bowling over would-be tacklers and leaving us all with mud-soaked faces and bruised egos. Watch out for Katie's "secret" play that she's been working on since the infamous "Pregnant Chad" and "Osama Bomba." Certainly, she'll pull it out at any time and when we least expect. OK, I doing some pushups just thinking about the big game. Need to go get in shape.
Papa Jon: 250 lbs fullback????????????? I don't weigh a lb over 230. And who's got their head on the turkey above? Why it looks like me. Katie, are you responsible for that? Takes a turkey to know one. Neener neener neener! I'm not sure I want to play football again this year. For one thing, I put on a few pounds since the fullback shots above. And secondly, I was awfully sore for a week or more after the last game.
Aven: Eli and I are warmed up and ready to come in on special teams in our debut! Just because we're half your height and carry your genes, doesn't mean we won't surprise you with a head-butt to the groin as we slip between your legs and dash for the end zone! Game on ol' fogies - we are ready to wipe your face in Aniya & Bella's poopie pants.


Since the Apple Cup WAS so hilariously sad this year, we will be putting extra effort into our traditional Thanksgiving Day football game! And oh yes, there will be a new secret play that will blow away the other team...to rival the most famous of the secret plays, the infamous "pregnant chad." You have to be present to achieve the absolute full effect!
