My new favorite Dave Jones metaphor

But, many of the current Lions have played one like this before and won – just two years ago, a [b]memorable 38-33 taffy pull[/b] at Illinois.

Taffy pull? That’s great stuff.

Maybe he lifted it from one of the guys who commented on his Temple-PSU football column. Read the 2nd comment. It is a good description, though. We’ve read enough trite descriptions and cliches like “beat-down,” “yawner,” “laugher,” and “snooze-fest.” Keep wit alive.
