  `Ü´ Greetings & A Lovely Monday to You

I do hope that your Saturday and Sunday were full of fun and productivity. I know in my case I had to relinquish Momma’s eggsclusive attention and assistance on my Campaign to be your December Bird of the Month to more pressing parrontal matters around our K Kritter Korral. (The portion of Sunday during which Momma was available to bring me to your page for a visit, the BirdChannel was not cooperating. You might say that their GPS was out of order! **TeeHee**)

You see, Momma and Daddy were informed that they could eggspect a visit from my Grandma from Idaho from later today, to last thru Thursday morning when they all gather at Daddy’s youngest brother’s home about an hour away from us for the first Family Celebration with everyone present since Momma and Daddy have known each other. Grandma was eager to be able to spend time here with Momma and Daddy, and all of us fids of course, before joining the rest of the family for a concurrent Celebration of Thanksgiving and her BirthDay on Thursday! Then she will remain with my Uncle and his family until she returns to her home in Idaho later in the week, while my other Uncle comes to pay us a visit over the long weekend.

So, all of this is to say that my visits may be a bit sporadic from now thru the end of the month, due to Grandma’s visit, the Holiday weekend with my Uncle visiting, and the upcoming Milonga Thanksgiving Bowl Game. I do apologize in advance for any visits I shall have to forego. But rest assured that I shall continue to do my utmost to bring you the maximum amount of FootBall information in the time we have left together.

And on that note, let us get straight to the information I’ve promised you next about the Offensive Squad on a FootBall team …

Let’s begin our eggsamination of the individual Positions on the Offensive Squad.

QuarterBack – The Player who usually receives the ball from the Center at the start of each play. He informs his TeamMates in the huddle of the play that will be run and then, after the Center snaps* the ball to him, either hands the ball to a Running Back or throws to a Receiver.

Center – The Player who hikes (or snaps) the ball to the QuarterBack at the start of each play. The term comes from the fact that this Player is flanked on either side by a Guard and a Tackle; he’s the “MiddleMan” (or Center) in a contingent of five Offensive LineMen or Blockers. He handles the ball on every play and also snaps the ball to the Punter and Holder.

Guard – There are two Guards on every play, and they line up on either side of the Offensive Center. The Guards protect the QuarterBack from an Inside Rusher; they block Defenders immediately across from them and also swing out, or pull**, and run toward either end [of the line] to block any Defender when the ball carrier runs wide°.

Come visit me, `Ü´ Ruby Coaches the Offense.

11/24/2014 02:48.31 PM Report This Comment  
  Tackle – Both Offensive and Defensive, on Offense they are Outside Blockers on the line of scrimmage°°.

Tight End – Serves as a BIG Receiver [Oh MY!] and also a Blocker. Unlike a Wide Receiver, this Player generally lines up beside the Offensive Tackle either to the right or to the left of the QuarterBack. (Also “Strong Side+”)

Wide Receiver – The Player who uses his speed and quickness to elude Defenders and catch the FootBall, but who isn’t primarily a Blocker. Wide Receivers are also known as “pass catchers” [but I-I-I would parrotsonally NOT disparage one so!]. Also called a WideOut.

Running Back – A Player who runs with the FootBall. Running Backs are also referred to as TailBacks and HalfBacks, depending on their exact responsibilities and alignment.

FullBack – A Player who lines up in the Offensive backfield++ and generally is responsible for blocking for the Running Back and pass-blocking to protect the QuarterBack. FullBacks also serve as short-yardage runners.

I would also like to call your attention to a display of several of the basic Offensive Formations which appear in the Gallery at the bottom of my page. (They also appear in my Profile Picture at the top of my page; but they are much clearer and contain eggsplanatory text in the photos in the Gallery.) I hope these are of use to you in recognizing some of what happens on the actual field of play the next time you watch a FootBall Game.

I am also including several definitions of terms used in the above Position Descriptions at the end of this note.

Have a Greyt Day! Perhaps enjoy watching The Jets play The Bills at 7:00 pm on CBS, or The Ravens play at The Saints at 8:30 pm on ESPN. Both times are EST. Remember, it is virtually illegal to watch a FootBall Game quietly. So do what we Avians are most well-known for doing … **S*Q*U*A*W*K** . **I*T** . **U*P** ! ! !

À la prochen frois, mon amie,
[Until next time, My Featheriend]
`Ü´ Ruby Francesca Beongia ♥

*snap—the action in which the ball in handed or hiked by the Center to the QuarterBack, to the Holder on a kick attempt, or to the Punter.
**pull—when a player leaves one area of the field, generally moving back and then over, to block in an area other than his normal position.
°run wide
°°line of scrimmage—the imaginary boundary between the two teams prior to the snap of the ball. The Offense’s and Defense’s scrimmage lines are defined by the tip of the ball closest to them and stretch from sideline to sideline. The Defensive Team usually lines up less than a yard away from where the ball is placed.
+strong side—the side of the Offensive formation where the Tight End aligns. With a right-handed QuarterBack, the strong side is usually to his right side.
++backfield—the group of Offensive Players (the Running Backs and QuarterBack) who line up behind the line of scrimmage (vs the Offensive LineMen and/or Receivers who line up at the line of scrimmage).

Starting tomorrow, Me, and the Roof (Rat) Top will be the only one's doing any blogging. Pops is allowed no more than one hour a day on the computer, according to the warden, (MoM) and the doctor. The test all came back very good, and slowly he's gaining back his strength. I will make sure to keep him in line.

  Hi Mocha
Wishing you a Happy Belated Hatchday. I hope you had a greyt day. I see your new toy.
I love chewing the plastic tips on the laces. But, those cute shoes are too small for me. One bite and it's half gone.
We had a heat wave today of 38 degrees with all day rain. At least the ice is off the roads now. Back to cold and snow for the rest of the week.
Hope all the veterans had a wonderful day, thanks.

That's a really cute pic of you.
Oh, that first snow pic was from the first snow on Halloween. The last two snow pics are from this morning. We will have several more days of snow.
Let it snow let it snow let it snow! BRRR ... it's a snow day and I'm all cuddled up with mom. Pass the hot chocolate. I did put up two new pics. You can see me checking out the white stuff. We had the first rollover of the season this afternoon. The SUV is toast but the people are fine.

  Hi Mocha
Good to hear from you. Not much is going on right now. As you can see by my pics, we had our first snow a while ago. We should have a few more days of snow falling soon.
My mom went on a mini vacation to Philly area. She met up with over a dozen BC moms for the Parrot Palooza. It was a lot of fun.
Today we had snow showers and it was 33 degrees. I was busy chewing up some new wood blocks. Now, I'm back in the footie pj's and ready for sleep ...yawn......

Sounds like a busy day at your house. My parronts weren't feeling well so, it was pretty quiet here. I was in charge of the house today ...haha!
It's so cold and damp up here. We are still in the 40's for a high with rain.
Does any bird have some sunshine they can share? We are in the hot chocolate season for sure!

I see the BC squawk page is back eating up blogs!!!!

I am having fun chewing up the new toys. yes, it's nice to be tucked in by mom. Dad is greyt but mom is better. She will play my music box and sing to me and cuddle.
It seems that tossing a full food dish on the floor is frowned upon. So, I thought that two dishes would be better. Mom wasn't smiling! Hey, I'm bored with all this gloomy weather. Looks like we will have a few days in the 40's. I hope with no rain, my feet are getting webbed! QUACK!

  Hi Mocha
Dad and I had a good time but, I prefer mom. I did get lots of goodies and toys when she came home.
Well, mom is back and still isn't caught up with everything. It took her 10 hours to drive home on Tuesday in the rain. Mom was gone for seven days and dad took good care of me. She was tired but, I had to see what see what she bought for me! That is after I gave her my greeting. I've been in toy heaven chewing everything in sight! I heard her say that the big toy is for Christmas. Do I have to be good that long??? I also have new perches and some tasty treats. Oh yes, I'm a velcro bird again. She had a greyt time with all the BC moms and hopes to do it again some day. It was cold and everyone had to have lots of layers to keep warm but, still was fun. Maybe we birds can go next time????

There are probably 30-40 shows a year within a 3-4 hour drive, but I only send them to the GOOD shows. Some of them just are not worth going to. ORLANDO is the best.

Thanks, I needed that 82 degrees! That's my mom's favorite temp. We are just in the 60's up here ...brrrrr.
Glad the wedding was nice. You have 3 new fids???? Really? I guess I'm liking being the only bird here ... more attention from my mom.
Last night during the Milonga, a tree that was damaged in a summer storm decided to fall down on our driveway taking the wires with it. We were out of power from 9:40 pm to 1:20 am. Monday we are back to rain. We were only high 60's today. I guess I'll put my shorts and flip flops away.

When I was a Kid, I wanted to be older. This stuff is not what I expected.

We had another day of 60's and warming to 71 around 3 until 5pm and then cold again. I sat out with mom for a half hour trying to find a spot of sun. This is NOT what the weather people said we would have. I guess we have two more chances to get a warm day.

Mom doesn't care about the cold and pouring rain as long as she sees her Daryl! She didn't get anything at the concert.

Thanks, I never thought I'd make it to the 20K.
Mom was gone on Sunday and came home for dinner today.
I'm back! I was happy to see mom back home again. She had a wonderful time at the Hall & Oates concert. It was only 53 degrees (outdoor concert downstate) and Daryl and John never took off their jackets. The audience was so bundled up! I hear that it should be a bit warmer for a few days ... hope so!
Sad to say but fall is here :(
