Sobieck's boyfriend Jeremy Rezek still seems to have control over the harlot, an unheard of phenomenon to this point.

The pregame meal was just about the same this year except for the emergence of 5 pork roasts as an alternative to turkey as the main meat. As I sampled the brand new pork entree it seemed that the meat had been flavored in some way as if it were marinated in a secret sauce of some kind. The cat hair cold slaw brought by Peg VanLanen, a favorite of this writer must have been cleverly hidden for I had missed my helping of the cabbage and feline hair delight upon my pass through the buffet style line. A large supply of pies, cookies, and bars dotted the desert platform and many survived the first cutting after the main meal only to be eaten after the game when hungry fans poured into Sobieck Hall to warm themselves and fuel their empty bellies. Along with the deserts the group devoured bags of popcorn and drank a number of adult beverages.

Profit from the raffle will be used to retire the debt on the calendar printer, purchase materials and supplies print new calendars and pay for prizes awarded for the rock paper scissors event at halftime. The cost of the calendars has been kept low thanks to the raffle and while there may not be a decrease in price on this years calendar it is possible future calendars may see a price decrease should the expense account actually build up finds. That's all the news that is news, see ya.

Strict enforcement this year of the unnecessary roughness rule led to a less physical game with extra scrutiny being placed on women and children being run down by bigger more powerful players. Officials were told by Commissioner Pickett that the roughness was not to be tolerated and to throw the flag immediately upon seeing the slightest infraction. Along with the roughness rule the rushing and throwing rule was enforced with quarterbacks having to rid the ball in 7 seconds or less, the first 5 seconds they are protected from the sack and are free to search for receivers with out worry. The strict enforcement of that rule generated a couple delay of game penalties. 

Sound slut Brittany Sobieck commented that Gary Meeuwsen definitely had the best dance moves to the bump music while centering for the gobblers. Sobieck a first year sound slut seemed to like the duty but missed being with the crowd on the
