Stuffing the Passer - Shipping Up to Boston

Going to play on the road is always a challenge, particularly the "getting there" part. The lads have struggled with the arcana of TSA rules (who says you can't bring plutonium on a plane?) and technical hijinks before, but they've really met their match this week in a cross-country (and then some) trek to Boston.

A special shout-out to friend of The House samari, who seems to be in the same predicament as our beloved fuzzy protagonists. You're not alone, young man. May this rousing allegory bring you comfort in this trying time.

It's getting wet out here real fast, man!

Stuffing the Passer - A Fireside Chat With Coach Kelly

We've detected a bit of a malaise in the Notre Dame fanbase following a few tough losses and a volatile coaching change. We consider it our responsibility, nay, our sacred duty to rouse the Notre Dame faithful back into optimism and to shake off this crisis of confidence. It's time to start crying and start sweating, and I suppose, if it helps, continue drinking.

See, sometimes when the breaks are beating the boys, what we really need is for the man in charge to pull on his snuggliest cardigan and sit us down for a nice fireside chat. We hope it made you feel as warm and fuzzy as it did for us.

"Your mileage may, um... vary".

Stuffing the Passer - A Beautiful Friendship

Back by inexplicably popular demand, Stuffing the Passer is charging back for its hopefully breakout sophomore year! Tucked, taped, waxed, and freshly married (I know, I know... I'm as confused as anyone on how playing with football-themed puppets and forming an enduring monogomous heterosexual bond can jive together. We're going to have to chalk it up alongside M-theory, electromagnetism, and the "socks disappearing in the dryer" conundrum in the "great mysteries of the universe" category. The less we stop to think about it, the better...), Season Two looks to be full of laughs, tears, and the occasional traumatic brain injury (hey, life's a contact sport. Get a helmet.)

This year, we bid farewell to last year's cast of characters, who all decided to skip out of town, get fired, or give up muppet life for a career in pastry larceny. No worries, though, after a brief bout of muppet plastic surgery and vocal reconstruction, a new band of miscreants have assembled to brighten your days. This week, the gang faces the faces the trauma of a close loss, the burdens of central nervous system injuries, and the dawning of what might just be a beautiful friendship. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll elect to give a very charitable definition to the "fair use" aspect of copyright law. Here's to a great year and the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Owwww, my throwing eye!
