Global huddling

Sumo tackles
According to yesterday's NY Times, more football coaches are looking abroad for talented players.

Hmmm ... I know where they might find some pretty good interior linemen ....

That made me laugh. Wouldn't have been the same without that photo, Mike. We're both old enough to remember a time when NFL linemen were relatively svelte fellows. Now, most of them are built like sumo wrestlers, especially on the offensive line.

Yeah, but let's see the linemen play barefoot.

Nice pic, Old Man. The trouble with sumo lineman is that they would get holding called on them all the time. Still, NFL linemen these days are about as big as sumo wrestlers (e.g. Shawn Rogers). Nice photoshop work on the pic.

Thanks, the helmets were a little tricky.
