"Football With 1 Stick Gum" is what the old packs of football cards used to read, when gum came with football cards and football cards were just something kids bought with their spare nickels. Whether they meant to or not, those cards celebrated football players, and this blog is in that spirit.

Marlin McKeever, The End Who Catches Passes Like A Linebacker
The backs of Marlin McKeever's cards say that he was switched from linebacker to tight end after three years in the league, and actually was the Rams' leading receiver one year. Maybe so, but if he tried to catch every pass like that he probably drove Roman Gabriel crazy. Hey, Marlin! The fingertips, Marlin! Catch it on the fingertips!
