I realize I am being super dorky about my very first professional writing assignment, but this article is my first time being published somewhere (other than on my blog) and I am darn excited about it!
Thank you to everyone who provided input or suggestions for this article. You were a bigger help than you could possibly know!
A smash mouth offense is the more traditional style of offense. It often results in a higher time of possession by running the ball heavily. So-called “smash-mouth football” is often run out of the I-formation or wishbone, with tight ends and receivers used as blockers. Though the offense is run-oriented, pass opportunities can develop as defenses play close to the line. Play-action can be very effective for a run-oriented team.
Simon and I are in for a night of ND football. We are decked out in our Irish gear (I’m totally wearing my spirit beads) and cheering loudly for our team.
We are watching the game, and the announcer just said "That’s just playing smashmouth!" as Hughes ran aggressively into the endzone.
This is very funny.
I use the term “smashmouth football” every chance I get…like dozens of times per quarter. I heard it once on that tragic MTV reality show “Two-A-Days” during some impassioned halftime pep-talk and I thought it was such an absurd expression, there is no way anyone who is not a HS Football coach (in Texas) would ever say it.
I am on board with the legging trend, but I don’t know what type to pick up. I know they range in price from $9 at Target to $900 at Intermix….I am guessing there are some great pairs available somewhere within that range- I just need help finding them.
And so I ask, what are your favorite brand of leggings?
Husb and I play this game where he quizzes me about sports, and I in turn test him on theatre history.
Today’s edition was an extra tough one. He named football players, and I had to tell him which college they attended. I would just like to say I successfully named Jamarcus Russell, Eli Manning and Devin Hester’s alma maters. Damn, I’m good!
Oh…it’s on! I might just have to bust out the big guns tonight- Tony Award trivia!
