    That mesh vest in front of the fence makes it look like Pascoe is hitting the invisible man.

    First impression: Pascoe can’t follow orders and rules don’t apply to him.

    “Coach”? Seems like it would be “first-name” or “Coach last-name”.

    It’s time for Pascoe’s English teacher to assign an oral book report.

    So he’s only a sophomore? Big John must be one of those kids who went through first and second grade a couple of times. Had a kid like that in my class and he got his driver’s license in 8th grade.

    Seems he’s a junior – didn’t play last year.

    P2- Is Gi giving a shout out to the 619 on the coffee mug? P3- The Mighty Timken Trojans, Home of the Drill Bits.

    John Pascoe, a 19 year old junior transfer from Timken High, but didn’t play for the Trojans during his sophomore year, because he was serving a 6-month sentence for aggravated assault. Seems he beat up the JV coach during the two-a-day workouts

    Looks like a facemask and/or shot to the helmet in P1. Pascoe has the ’roid rage real bad.

    Coaches all call each other “Coach.” I learned that from Friday Night Lights.

    I questioned that somewhere. Did he have to take Speech? Does he have a medical excuse he can use whenever he’s asked a question in class?

    P1- illegal blow to the head/head slap/block in the back, Pascoe is displaying the full repertoire that Timken Roller Bearing’s thug coach Frank Sutton (Sgt. Carter from Gomer Pyle to those under 45) teaches his squad.

    Pascoe bears eerie resemblance to Dethklok frontman Nathan Explosion….

    Gil is a bit anal. He always flies and Amtraks Coach. I’m fairly certain his grandfather even stage-coached.

    The Timken coach should have said that Pascoe lost his bearings while playing, had the equivalent of roid’ rage and had to be restrained in a Timken Bearing Strait jacket after seeing Onalaska from his back porch…and that he became a selective mute after slipping on ice at a Speedco station when startled by a peacock and a retired wrestler. Yeah, that’s what he should have said.

    You forgot the part about being held for Ransom at MilforD Ink.

    Sling Blade is just starting to show his good moves in practice. He’ll open his first game by honoring Deacon Jones, and feature the head slap for a few plays. Gil hopes the team doctor (“A-Rod has my number”) has the meds timed so the violent rages don’t come when the band is on the field. Apparently he did something rather vile to a sousaphone player at Timken at homecoming. He had Marty Moon’s lawyer, so it never made the papers.
