The Victoria Times Match Game!

With sports generally at a stand still (even if you enjoy the NBA or NHL) for the next couple of months, it's time to find our own diversions. Lately, I have been waking up at around 830 or so, watching an hour of Sportscenter as I work out, watching The Price is Right and another hour of Sportscenter while I write for you rubes, then flipping it over to the Game Show Network. Card Sharks, The Match Game, and Family Feud all come on before I go to work. I wish I were Richard Dawson. That guy had it all figured out.
Anyways, for those who haven't seen it, The Match Game is the best. Without going into detail, I thought it might be fun if we set up a version of the Match Game here at the Times. Without further ado, (and fill in the blanks in the comments) to the game.

- Marian Gaborik missed another practice. This time, it wasn't his groin, it was his [blank].

- Brock Spack was told that he wasn't a very good defensive coordinator. "Defensive coordinator?! I thought I was the [blank] coordinator!"

- Joe Crede was in talks with the Twins, but was worried about playing with Nick Punto. "I'm not used to playing with guys who [blank]"

- After an offseason marred by two surgeries, Peyton Manning will change things up in 2009. Instead, he will [blank]

- Troy Polamalu and Larry Fitzgerald were chatting before the Super Bowl. It turns out, instead of gel or hairspray, they both put [blank] in their hair.

- With 9 kids already, it's no wonder Travis Henry was [blank]ing a school teacher.

- Dumb Dora was so dumb (how dumb was she?!?), she actually thought the [blank] had a chance to win the championship.

- I wouldn't really call what Ryan does at the Victoria Times "writing". It's more like [blank]ing.
