'Incidental Punishment'

Image for article titled 'Incidental Punishment'

You spend fourteen years in this tank, you begin to understand that you've only got two thing left they can't sweat out of you or beat out of you. Your balls. And you better hang onto them, because they're about the only thing you're gonna have when you get out of here.


Football returned with pre-season exhibitions this week. The Longest Yard (of 1974, not the hideous Adam Sandler remake from 2005) is noted for introducing several innovations to the game, such as the strategy of throwing the ball at Ray Nitschke's nuts on consecutive plays. Wonder why the Bears never tried that.

It's also known for a line that will never get you out of a ticket: "Look what we have here—a miniature cop!"

Nom rally! Is that like the gourmet race? #corrections

Of course, dealzon made a typo of its own, as the Skyrim link (which should really say it's a preorder as it looks like they're ready to ship now) has spelled xbox as xbos. Unless there's a reason it's spelled that way.
