    I would have thought the Green Knight would be on the field if Gawain is there! Also, Blake is a Bell-End twice, lucky guy!

      Considering the British definition of Bell-end I’m not sure Blake is that lucky, and I’m not sure how he ended up on the team twice, but, now that you mention it, the Green Knight would be a formidable player.

    Schmendrick played a hell of a game, but in the end it just wasn’t enough to overcome the mistakes of Namor, or the Curse of the Golden Gate.

      The problem with putting Namor on the field is, of course, that he’s completely out of his element.

    Everybody loves a tight end. Sadly, I did not score the extra points, but you did.

      The good news is that Who’s Line Is It Anyway? rules apply here and the points don’t matter.
