Gir's Weekly Column: Volume 60

We Are The Rose indeed! Hello, hello, hello, readers of the Daily Magi and the Magi Football Blog, I am Gir Todafunk, back at it with another Weekly Column for you folks to enjoy. Happy Homecoming Week everyone. Can you believe that this is the 45th annual Homecoming Week at this school? I can't believe it, either. Five more years, and this university will turn 50 years old. Wow. 

So, I want to go ahead and let you know that Nana, my lovely wife, is chairing this event. Good on her to take the time to do something other than focus on her music stuff and manage this wonderful Homecoming Week. I watched the rugby game between us and Finland and it was another blowout. We whipped them, 54 to 7, at the Sakura Bowl.

You know something? I think we need to declare ourselves as a city state and have our rugby team become its representatives. We've got a lot of former members of the team go on to represent their home countries, many who now play for Japan. We're like a pipeline for the Japanese national team, with the many type of players Coach Jett is bringing in.

I have decided that I will forget about winning awards this year. I don't need 'em, I don't have to care about them, I just want us to defend our Four Corners. Heisman? Don't need. Bednarik? Don't need. Thorpe? Don't need either. If I can focus my time and energy on performing for my team and helping them win games, maybe a trophy or two like that will come. But I will not sweat over those things, not at this moment.

We're only in the fourth week of the season and I noticed that a few assistant coaches have been sacked, unfortunately. One blowout score can cost a position coach a job, it seems. That is the knock-down, drag-out world of college football coaching. Of course, you won't see those types of things here at Madoka. Coaches leave on their own terms because we know how to play the game, period. But I don't think a lot of them want to leave. Go figure.

Short column this week; I'm going to keep under wraps what I want to talk about next week; you'll have to stay tuned to find out. I'm Gir, Mr. Wonderful, signing off. You are not alone.
