Who knew Bill Cosby’s words from Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids would still hold true after all these years?
“Hey,” offered Estero defensive line coach Pat Hayes after the one-sided affair, “I didn’t even know 91 was a multiple of seven.”
Unfortunately for Coach Hayes, he and the rest of the Estero High football program learned their times tables the hard way on the football field. Estero was beaten 91-0 by Naples High. Yeah, that’s right. 91-0. That would be 13 touchdowns for those of you counting on your fingers and toes.
Naples High coach Bill Kramer should have been living large after such a huge win. However it ain’t all good for him either.
He looked at the scoreboard late in the game, saw 91-0, and said he felt sick to his stomach. Kramer’s team ran only 31 plays and he kept most of his best players on the sideline — for the entire game in some cases. But still Kramer knew what was coming.
Parents from both schools were furious. Estero parents wanted to know why he ran up the score and Naples parents wanted to know why he didn’t put their babies in the game to run up their stats. Kramer said, “There were people ready to burn my house.”
Keep in mind the schools are about the same size. However while Naples Florida Class 3A champions and have players committed to schools like Ohio State, Estero “has no college prospects and only about 25 healthy players remaining on its roster”.
It’s not all bad for Estero High. They were losing 70-0 at the half which means they only gave up three touchdowns in the second half. Now that’s change you can believe in. Maybe Naples were just tired from scoring so much but Estero should look at it as a positive and they can take it into their next game against Cape Coral…who almost beat Naples. Hey Hey Hey!
The eXtremity Games are to be held July 18th – 21st in lovely Orlando, Florida and the Deuce could not be more excited to watch a bunch of people already missing limbs to be participating in Xtreme sports. I mean, there will no longer be that awkward period of silence that occurs when a skateboarder lands his 50-50 grind badly thereby fracturing his leg in several places because, well, he won’t have a friggin leg anyway! That was a fake leg! HAHAHAHA! We can all laugh about it and move on!
BMX and Mountain Biking
All events have prize pools of $1,500, $750, $250 for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, but these are awarded only to the most difficult of divisions…the rest are shit out of luck and get one of the equivocal “non cash prizes”. Lets hope it is new limbs for the guy that fucks up his Backflip One-Handed Nac-Nac during Moto-X ’cause lemme tell ya, he’s gonna need it.
Altogether, the Deuce supports giving
crips gimps handicapped “handicapable” people their own eXtreme games and events. Seriously, everyone else has them, why the hell can’t they? It really cannot be worse than National eXtreme Baseball.

Its been a trying week for Billy Donovan, first he felt with all his heart that it was the right thing to sign a multi year, multi million dollar contract with the Orlando Magic. Days later, he had a change of heart and wanted to return back to where he did his best work, the University of Florida. So many emotions must be flowing around Billy’s head, and Rosie Grier says it best…Billy, “Its alright to cry”
Side note, i still sing this song everytime some dude cries, whether I am taunting him or not, and I haven’t seen this video since I was 4. Rosie and “Free to be you and me” is permanently ingrained in my memory…and I love it.
