Is Tim Couch The Randy Velarde Of Professional Football?

Posted in Gridiron at 6:55 pm by

First person to say something about Tim Couch being tossed out of Canton loses their comment privileges for at least 10 minutes. In all seriousness, if Human Growth Hormone isn’t potent enough to help a QB beat out Lester Ricard for 3rd place on the Jacksonville depth chart, to quote Ray Parker Jr., Couch oughta want a new drug.

    Wow, that joke took forever to develop. And for what, a Tim Couch joke? Sorry, my blood pressure is still pretty high after watching Johnny D take a standing o after that dinger over by the squirrel tonight. I’d like to punch the caveman in the gut just for that goddamned smirk he flashes anytime there’s a camera on him.

    I kinda thought the joke was in the headline, but whatevs. I had a ticket for the Pettitte/Matzusaka duel tonight but thanks to the local police, I had to settle for Chris George vs. Juan Gutierrez.

    Dice threw at least 2 and as many as 5 gyroballs, which Joe Girardi insisted on calling ‘changeups.’ Earlier in the year when Joe Morgan and Jon Miller did a game, he threw one to Giambi which he hit for a double. I remember before the season started and ESPN was running this clip of Orel Hershiser kinda angrily denying the existence of the gyroball and calling it a ‘screwball’ or a ‘backup slider’ and the lady of the house laughed and asked me ‘so, does this guy hate Asian people or something?!?’

    I thought the setup was for the Huey Lewis & the News joke in the last line.
