Cleats by Bill Hinds for December 21, 2008
Elf: We kick it? Elf: Yes! We kick it! We're playing soccer, and it's a soccer ball! We're supposed to kick it! Have any of you played the game before? Elf: That's a question you should have asked before you signed us up for the tournament. Elf: I thought all Europeans played soccer! Elf: The North Pole isn't really part of Europe. Elf: I'm talking about your European heritage. Forge it. Let's get back to practicing. Oh, and besides kick it, you can hit it with your head. Elf: That doesn't work any better.
