YOU GRADE IT
More football. Billy Bubba Bo Bob goes down on a play. He fails a "how many fingers" test, but they keep him in the game. The Coyotes win, of course. As they're heading back to the locker room, Coach Killjoy busts Drawlson for reading Vonnegut during the game. "If your daddy hadn't played so hard for me, I'd cut your ass," he says. God, cut him anyway. He doesn't want to be there. He knows it; you know it. For heaven's sake, why is this even a conflict? Killjoy tosses the book away. Locker room wrap-up. The coach awards the game ball to Lance Harper. Killjoy is actually rather supportive of everybody's efforts here. Tweeder leans over and pretends to give Lance a blowjob. No, I didn't make that up. And this still isn't Queer as Folk. I guess they wanted to bring the Wayne's World "We're not worthy!" chant up to the next level. I can't imagine why pretending to give your friends blowjobs hasn't caught on as a form of compliment. Oh, and Tweeder's technique seems pretty solid. I'm just saying. Killjoy tells Wendell that he did a good job with the running game; Wendell complains about a hurt knee. Killjoy says, "Never show weakness. The only pain that matters is the pain you inflict." He holds up Bobby Bo Bubba, who is busy wiping the foreshadowing off his brow, as an example of playing through the pain. Drawlson sinks back into his locker and snits, "Four more games." And then, unbelievably, Lance, in the next locker over, tells Drawlson, "Hang in there, man. You're doing fine." The hell? Maybe this is Dawson's Creek after all. The quarterback who did all the work is praising Drawlson, who didn't do anything. He couldn't even be bothered to pay attention to the game. Lance asks Tweeder if he's got anything to help him with his knee. Tweeder gives him a bottle of prescription pain pills. Coach Killjoy is blathering away some more, but is distracted by one football player, who is feeling up the arm muscles of another football player. Again, I'm not making this up. "What the hell is this shit?" he asks. It's foreplay, dude. "I'm not interested in your fucking muscles!" Killjoy shouts. Dude, you're not the one jockboy's trying to get in the sack now, are you? And the one he is seems mighty interested to me. Anyway, this sets Killjoy off and he starts chewing up the lockers and benches. Tweeder calls Killjoy an asshole to Lance, but softly, because none of the boys has the balls to stand up to him. Oh, whatever. Cut to the post-game party. Bobby Bo Bob is feeding beer to Bacon. Lance is making out with some bottle-blonde cheerleader, who says she wants to be his "wide receiver." Okay, I have never, ever heard women use that euphemism. Only gay men. Maybe she hangs around with those muscle-loving jockboys. Sarah Michelle Gellaren't drags Lance off to some other room for a "touchdown dance" (wink, wink). They pass by Drawlson and Jules. Drawlson asks the conservatively dressed Joey -- er, Jules -- why she never dresses like Gellaren't. Jules snarks that it takes a lot of money to look that cheap. Drawlson points out that Gellaren't gets straight As, but that's not good enough for Jules, because Blondie has sex, and is therefore a bad, irresponsible girl. As are all girls who have sex in high school. I suppose Gellaren't should be glad this isn't a slasher film, or she'd be toast in about five minutes.
