FOD

Here's a fun one. The commissioner wanted to incorporate his beloved heap of a truck into the illustration...a two-tone Ford Ranger with the big "R" missing on the back gate...hence the nickname, "FOD". Add a lovely girl in a throwback Penguins sweater and Lord Stanley's fabled cup, and you've got a weird, wonderful image!

Thats great! I love your hockey pictures. And just a fair warning, the Cup is coming back to New Jersey this year :)

its amazing how much class the cup can bestow even on a pos fod! hey, you're a pittsburgh guy, what's the scuttle about dennis dixon? i'm an oregon guy...

B.C.- Big game against New Jersey tonight. I hope our depleted lineup can muster a good showing now that they're finally back at home.

Chibi - Dixon played well during preseason, but as the third-string QB, and with Large Ben on fire the way he's been, that was the last I've heard of him! You'll understand if I just as soon it stay that way!

Guess our depleted is better right now than your depleted line-up, hahaha. I really cant wait to see them play each other again when they BOTH are completely healthy.
And thats 9 in a row on the road! :)

...i understand. it's only his 2nd year anyway. but do you think he will get his shot with the steelers?

Robert Ullman said...

Looks like this is your week to get an answer to your question! The nightmare scenario of a Dennis Dixon start, so remote three weeks ago, will come true tomorrow night in prime time...and against the goddamn Ratbirds, no less.

Cheebs, I can't decide whether this is your fault or not.

i didn't see the game but, as i understand it, dixon didn't embarass himself. the ravens had to go to ot to beat a 3rd string quarterback! sorry for the loss though.
