Boy, If He Doesn't Miss The Kick After That

We were watching a college football game on Saturday. At the end of the game, a coach called two consecutive timeouts to ice the kicker. Eli 16.3 started laughing, because he knows I absolutely cannot stand when coaches do that.

"I think I've changed my mind," I said.

"About what?" Eli asked.

"Instead of outlawing timeouts to ice the kicker, I think it should be legal."

"You do?"

"Yes," I said. "And there should be two snipers stationed in the stadium press box. If a coach calls a timeout to ice a kicker, the timeout is granted, but--"

Eli burst out laughing.

"The referee would say 'Timeout, Purdue.' Then he would pause and say, 'Take the shot.' "

"Seems fair," Eli said.
