There are bad jobs, and then there are "you can't pay me enough to do that" jobs.

Cleaning up after the circus elephants, for example, falls into the latter category. So does working as a crash test dummy. Then there's the person in charge of clearing away road kill on hot summer nights.

I agree with Phod.
He probably hasn't ever strapped it on.
Nothing like laying it to a guy, especially if he doesn't see it coming and is a hell of alot bigger than you.

By the way, Tom Powers is a horses assssssssss
;D

I agree.
I'd personally be signing up for a lot of insurance if I was returning punts.

He very well may have "strapped it on", but I doubt it was football related.

It's the best and worst job in football. The wedge knows you're coming, usually the wedge consists of big guys(like myself, I was on the KR team in HS I'm 6'4 275) and they'd usually send a decent sized guy with good speed as the wedge buster. When you saw him coming, he didn't stand a chance, but if the wedge was slow to form, you're getting cracked hard.


I'd say about 30% of the time Wedge Buster is a good job, the other 70% you're on your ass.

It is a very humbling vantage point to see the game from my friend.

If you pay me 3 Gs a year, I'll gladly let you hit me on my ass 5 times over the course of 3 hours.
