Stuffing the Passer - Mystery Adventure Time!

So, uh, this happened. Look, we here at the House Rock Built love a mystery as much as the next guy, but clearly not as much as the puppets. The slightest sniff of some trouble afoot, and the lads are off like blazes the save the day, catch the ghost, and rescue the haunted amusement park.

Of course, all things being equal, we would have preferred for the lads to wait until after the game to solve this particular mystery, but what are you gonna do? When Mystery Adventure Time calls, you got to answer the bell. We get it. You can't win 'em all.

Exeunt! Stage right!!

Stuffing the Passer - The Gold Standard

Well, the bye week is over, so it's back to work. Time to shake off the rust and get back to the grindstone. It's kind of a mystery how Stuffing the Passer reported to camp after one week off 50 pounds overweight, but offseason conditioning was never really our thing.

The big news this week is the snazzy new helmets that the lads will be sporting this week against USC. They're super gold. I mean, like, golder than gold. It's almost like how much more gold could they be? None. None more gold.

Of course, if you're a socially maladjusted crazy person like irishoutsider and myself, you can't read articles with titles like "Notre Dame sets gold standard with new helmets" and not immediately think about Ron Paul, monetary policy, William Jennings Bryan, and a gurgling stream of semi-lucid macroeconomics. This week's STP is... uh, special. It also features I believe our first ever cameo by a Nobel laureate. And, if I may be so bold, a line that I really don't think has ever been uttered by any human being before:

"Oh man, Ron Paul ruins everything! This is my 12th birthday party all over again!"

Stuffing the Passer - Futureball

It was nice to see Dayne Crist get a few snaps in mop-up time against Purdue last week, but we're still concerned that our favorite eyepatched muppet has a little bit too much free time on his hands these days. It looks like that turned around this week when muppet coach Kelly assigned him duty to do a film study on Air Force for this weekend's game. Unfortunately, some wires got crossed, and we ended up with an Air Force-themed film written and directed by the inestimable muppet Dayne.

I'm really enjoying the pathos of this scene. It really illustrates the duality of man.
