Football Weekly Vol IV - This is not a test
Loose E. Anna Monroe? E. Anna has a mother and I am sure she is not happy about this. I don’t know if I can even say their nicknames on a G-rated e-mail but suffice it to say it rhymes with Chore Locks. I’ve heard that Paris Hilton is their mascot (no offense meant to all of her fans). As you might expect, Loose E. runs a spread offense. Look for the Owl defense to try and penetrate the line and force the spread out wide. I look for the Owls to be on top most of the game. Look for Loose E. Anna to play zone defense to allow FAU to advance and score at will.
I was contacted by June Lockhart to be a part of the halftime festivities for this weeks game. She asked if I could drive my Smart Car festooned (I like that word, it’s Greek from “fesitval” and “cartoon” meaning a festival of cartoons, look it up if you don’t believe me) with balloons on the field. It would have been a great honor for me but the Smart Car is in the shop, it seems that some of the duck tape and rope used to secure members of my crack staff made their way into the little engine and one of the squirrels that run around in their got sick from the stick’um on the duck tape and he started puking all over the other squirrels and it reeked havoc with the rubber bands and paper clips that help hold things together.
