I'm still in a state of shock after reading this article from the Herald-Dispatch. I've talked a big game about Marshall's never say die attitude in the race for the Fulmer Cup. But, never in my wildest dreams did I think they could pull it off. Well, Hiram Moore just made it happen, and I couldn't be prouder if I tried. Not only did he receive four misdemeanor charges, but he went and got himself suspended for the first game. Now there is no way in hell that they could ever catch Ellis T. Jones for the overall lead, but this last offense should push them to the top of the team points lead!
Unlike most of the teams at the top of the Fulmer Cup, Marshall has matriculated their way to the top with a DUI here, and a stolen Play Station 2 there. It's truly been a workman like performance. But really, you have to give credit where credit is due. No one said it better than Orson:
Give it to Marshall-champions win games when they're on the line. And despite being miles down in the Fulmer Cup standings to the Insane Clown Posse that is the Delaware Blue Hens (hard to beat home invasion/armed robbery/steroids combo,) Marshall keeps plugging along with their three yards and a cloud of misdemeanors strategy of winning the Fulmer Cup.
Thank you Orson, making fun of Marshall just wouldn't be the same without you!
