Goofus and Gallant

I distinctly remember a few things about going to the doctor as a child. The vivid memories are all about the time spent in the waiting room, or should I say rooms, as there were two: a sick and well room. Neither had a door and they were adjacent to each other, separated only by a wood framed glass wall. The well room had the better toys: Tonka trucks, G.I. Joes and Legos while the sick room had Highlights. Who goes to the doctor when they're not sick? As long as it took to be seen, I'd read that thing cover to cover, and as I got older I'd pen mustaches and glasses on the people inside. Today, Goofus and Gallant are going to help me illustrate a point, inconsistency.

Through five games the identity of the 2010 Hokies has been inconsistency. It's become routine for us to shoot ourselves in the foot, sputter for a bit, suture the wound and rebound. The mental toughness is enviable, while the execution is horrid.

Last week at NC State we grabbed a fleeing victory by its balls to stay undefeated in ACC play. Saturday against Central Michigan we take the next step and never let it out of our grip.

I saw him in a different one on TV, but couldn't find the video on YouTube. His cameo is pretty effing awesome.


That is sweet showing Skipper. I didn't notice it before. Freeze the frame and you can see the South end zone.

#Let's Go - Hokies

When I first saw it on the TV I spent like 10 minutes rewinding the DVR to get a solid freeze frame. It's pretty awesome, Skipper needs some more camera time.

here you go for those of you who aren't good with the pause button.


for doin' work

The Key Play

Shouldn't we be having said discussion every week? Last week could have been the 2nd half kick-off that set the tone for the rest of the game.

#Let's Go - Hokies

For the first five games we could.

I hope, and think, we'll flat out roll these guys.

love this

i'm listening to britney spears, doin some mad work, and starting to feel excited about game day. it's the first time since boise state. not gonna lie, that junk really took the wind out of my sails.

here's to hoping we've got goofus benched for the season!

Blocked K

Who is the Goofus blocking the K in HOKIES. Didn't he know he was getting in the way of a commercial? By the way magduffs, just to be clear are you listening to Britney Spears or Brittany S Pierce? I like them both but the Glee girl cracks me up every time and I have to pause the show to catch my breath.

Great Goofus and Gallant picture and memories. Nothing like remembering the days of looking in a trashed up Highlights that had most pages ripped out and sanskrit written for all the answers not to mention the faces and phallic symbols Joe put in there. It was also great that while looking at this magacrap, you were most likely trying to stop your insides from exploding one way or the other. Damn, those were the days.

There was no mention of certain Goofus moments of throwing the ball too high or too low, remember your Grant Noel tweet? Hopefully that is behind us and we march ahead Gallantly. Go Hokies.
