Ask The Slouch
Q. Do you feel vindicated now that the tuck rule has been repealed? (Roger Brown; Willow Bend, W.Va.)
A. Yes. In fact, the late Al Davis and I have petitioned the NFL to vacate the Patriots' Super Bowl title that season. Davis also now is attempting to appeal the Immaculate Reception result.
Q. The Heat streak is impressive, but didn't the Harlem Globetrotters once win, like, 8,000 straight games? (Adam Goldstein; Chicago)
A. Indeed, the Globetrotters have had multiple winning streaks in excess of 100 games, plus they weren't playing the Bobcats and the Magic every other night.
Q. Isn't asking The Slouch a non-rhetorical question functionally equivalent to the intellectual challenge of owning the Miami Marlins? (Larry Berg; Olympia, Wash.)
A. Pay the man, Shirley.
Q. Does Pope Francis automatically become the interim commissioner of the Catholic 7? (Philip R. Hochberg; Washington, D.C.)
A. Pass the collection plate for this fella, too.
