sex barrier, not gender barrier. the use of gender in place of sex because people don't want to say sex gets my panties in a bunch.

I'd love to run her spread option.

Artificial reality and publicity-stunt articles piss me off.  This chick has ZERO chance of getting on a squad, so why bother with these stupid things?

Any random college-aged soccer-playing male would out kick her, so why try and make this more important than it really is?

In fact I'll but my money where my mouth is--FREE TOTALFARK FOR EVERYONE if she puts up distance and accuracy numbers in the 80th percentile or better, as compared to college Senior kickers.

I'd tell her "I don't know what's wrong, this has never happened to me before".

What a farce this is.  Do you think she has the leg and the clear head to kick a 55 yarder with 3 seconds left?  More importantly, does she have the leg and head to make an NFL coach and general manager have the confidence in her to use a roster spot?  That's the question and the answer right there.

I'd funk her right in her ask

When she walks past the team, will she get called for backfield in motion?

HaywoodJablonski: I'd touch her back.
I'd down her inside the 20.
I'd have sexual intercourse with her.
I'd split her uprights.
I'd name her to my practice squad.
I'd put it on her endzone


You lost me with that 3rd one. All the rest make perfect sense, though.

There's nothing wrong with either phrase, get over it.

I'd lead with my helmet, if you catch my drift.

TomD9938: Good for her.  She's knocking down the barriers that are keeping men from playing on a professional womens soccer team.

And she is kind of attractive.

/ in an east coast sort of way...


Surely thats a typo You meant in an "equine" kind of way, right?
 
2013-03-03 06:16:44 PM  
Her first kick went 16 yards, then she claimed a quad injury.

Six of one and all that.

Just saw that on the local news, but they said she also made one from 13 yards.

Thirteen yards.

Yeah, hit the follow-up tag.

 "The distance wasn't there, but hopefully the scouts will notice my technique. It's not always length."

Everyone at MIT is very smart in some way.  Many also have areas of complete and utter stupidity.

Disappointing on every level.

So, does her lack of aptitude as a kicker mean that farkers will now retract their earlier offers to get their kicks with her?
