Stuffing the Passer - O Touchdown Tree

As we conclude our broadcast year of 2009, we'd like to step back for a second and remind you of the reason for the season. We proudly present to you the Stuffing the Passer Players' Christmas Special (joined already in progress) and it's thrilling conclusion where muppet Golden Tate gives a stirring speech reminding us that the true meaning of Christmas is not trees, or presents, or YouTube videos, but touchdowns. Sweet, wonderful touchdowns.

God bless us, all of us.

On a related note, irishoutsider and I are happy and relieved to wrap up our production schedule for 2009, and are nothing but amazed by the positive feedback we've received from this project. We're going to take a few weeks off to rest and celebrate the Winter-Solstice-Gift-Exchange and Arbitrary-Gregorian-Calendar-Renumeration season, then get to work on a special offseason project that we'll share more details on later. Basically, we want to extend our appreciation to those of you who have indulged our weird fantasy and humiliated themselves by yelling "BACKUP pirate hat!" in socially unacceptable situations. Hopefully by the end(ish) of January, we'll have a little somethin' somethin' that we think you'll enjoy. Happy holidays everyone!

And lo, they were afraid, because he was made of many, many touchdowns!

Stuffing the Passer - Coach Kelly Gets Grilled

After a long dark nightmare of a coaching search, Notre Dame has finally found its man in Brian Kelly (and, also, apparently, a thirteen year-old to design a website for him). However, before he takes over the reins, he has to face his toughest critics in muppet Golden Tate and Jimmy Clausen and answer some pressing questions. We think he fared quite well.

Tough questions, but fair.

Stuffing the Passer - Jimmy and Golden's Last Press Conference

A bittersweet moment this week as the Golden Tate and Jimmy Clausen eras came to an end at Notre Dame, as both lads announced they will be heading to the NFL. To make sure that the event had all the gravitas that it deserved, the boys spent a lot of time worrying about the backdrop behind them and taking extra time to make sure it was just right.

The final result (shown on your right) was nice, but I kind of liked the earlier attempts as well. It's a whole process, though, this creativity thing. Sometimes the best ideas are the ones that don't make the cut. Perhaps those other backgrounds will make like the director's cut of their press conference footage.

I don't know, something a little more, like, manly...

Also, if you're interested in downloading those backgrounds for, like, your Christmas cards this year, they can be found here:
