It’s Only a Flat Tire, But There Be Tigers Lurking

Flat tires are a bitch. I don’t care how adept you are at mechanical handiwork, changing it, especially when you have a destination in sight, someplace ya really wanna get to, is a pure pain in the ass.

Worse, yet, is when ya pull out your tire iron, jack and spare, get it all laid out…

And the very first freakin’ lug nut you tackle, you discover it has been rounded off by some heavy with a pneumatic wrench from your last rotation.

At this point, you either quit and call AAA, or rely on experience. Hey, whaddaya know? You can make a shim from anything you have laying around your ride.

The adjustments work on the damaged lug, and so does the jack. The spare has air and tread, due to more than a modicum of diligence, and there ya go.

Back on the road you can pass that Mack truck ahead!

Or take the train. Yes. For this one, definately take the train. Get the heavy equipment out (’cause you’ll need it) Get that sucka right, and roll. Bring John Henry, too…Hell, bring John Henry the horse along, as well.

    Nice return, but that was a lot of bad tackling and pursuit angles

    Missed facemask on that kick return. Surprisingly the 3rd benefit of the doubt call I’ve counted thus far. Never happens. We’ll see how that plays out down the stretch.

    None of you know just how good a 77 year old pack grad feels about being ahead. “A little pussy never hurt the Pack.”

    You think so, Bill? Looked pretty blatant to me. Announcers blowing off about it being uncatchable but I think maybe they might just be what I like to call mow-rons.

    We need to respond with a drive of our own to give the defense a rest. That was a long Clempson drive.

    ^We kicked a## on the stat board for the 1st qtr…

    Regardless of the scoreboard, we keep doing that and don’t do anything stupid… we’re in position…

    As Johnny just said…. forget all the pregame hype about Defenses and running games…
    this one is shaping up to be a Shoot-Out!!!
