How Offensive Linemen Stay Awake in Meetings


O Line, smelling like roses. (By John McDonnell - TWP)


"You know what, meetings are fun," Casey Rabach told me today. "Obviously there are times where things get stale, but we let Jansen drop a fart or something and it picks back up."

Wow. Ok. Great. Um, so those would be bad?

"Oh, God," Rabach said. "Jansen? Hell yeah. It's terrible."

Like, worst on the team?

"Well," Rabach said, since [Cory] Raymer retired, yeah."

Any way to...I don't know, to describe Jansen's badness in this particular field?

"Why don't you ask him?" Rabach suggested.

For some reason, I passed. No need to let the man toot his own horn after others had already tooted it for him. So to speak.

Yeah, come to think of it, Raymer had the look of a nasty farter.

Maybe Jansen had a bad Filipino sandwich that's why he passes so much gas

Way to maintain the notion that offensive linemen are simpletons, instead of the smartest men on the field.

A Ben's Half Smoke as a bonus to each attendee ensures hilarity.

As a tight end in college, I attended my fair share of O-lineman meetings. I second the above comment: O-linemen are indeed among the sport's smartest players. But perhaps in no other forum on earth is flatulence (flatulation?) performed with such singular frequency, potency, and flair than in an O-line meeting. An awesome experience.

Gives new meaning to "offensive" linemen.

Underrated, smart people can be gross, too, can't they?

We should also be aware of and sensitive to potential cultural differences that may be at work here. Perhaps where Mr. Jansen's from, it's a compliment to the chef.

My eyes are burning. Nate was that you? And anyway, how does that transmit over the Internets?

Ask me again why I never got around to building that Internet Smell-O-Rama startup in the late 90s.
