More NFL / Blood Bowl
Was watching the ESPN "Sports Center" with my non-gamer wife the other evening to hear the football highlights (I managed to convert my lovely spouse to a loyal Seahawks follower some years back, despite her childhood love affair with Joe Montana and Steve Young), and she had this to say:
"Why can't OUR quarterback play like that?"
Referring, of course, to our crappy-crappy rookie QB who is bringing down the whole value of an otherwise championship caliber team. Yes, Wilson has shown improvement...but "improvement" isn't good enough when you paid $20 million for Matt Flynn and never gave him a chance to start. That's bullshit.
THEN she said:
"We need to get a vampire for our team."
Referring of course to Blood Bowl (my wife having played more than a few games in Ye Old Blackrazor's Blood Bowl league).
Now she then did go onto say that Count Luthor was a far better ball-handler than quarterback/passer, but I still think her point is a valid one...we need to put a high-priced star player in to lead this team, not a 3rd round rook. Obviously, though, Pete Carroll has never played Blood Bowl.
