  2. At week 7, the Ducks record is 7-0. Who will deal us our first loss knowing we play every other team one more time this season? As a proud Grown up Duck, I'd love nothing more for everyone involved than to see a complete undefeated championship season. Would you rather be able to talk to land animals, animals that fly, or animals that live under the water? Animals on land, so I'd be able to talk with my dog and cats and so I can stroll through a zoo talking to basically everything. Granted if it one of those "they can talk to you but nobody else can hear them" kind of deals, then everyone at the zoo is going to think I'm a nutjob Would you rather have all traffic lights you approach be green or never have to stand in line again? If I chose the first one, I'll be robbed off two of life's greatest experiences: a) Looking over at the car next to you, giving the driver the signal and dragging him as the lights turn green to assert your dominance b) looking over the chick in the car next to you and give her one of these: Whereas there is literally nothing good about standing in line, so to never have to do that again would be a godsend Would you rather 5% of the population have telepathy, or 5% of the population have telekinesis? You are not part of the 5% that has telepathy or telekinesis. I mean, if I'm not a part of the 5%, what's the point, but I'll go telekinesis. To see someone start making things fly all over the place and create some chaos would be great. Plus, if one of my family, friends or colleagues are part of the 5% and I pick telepathy and they can find out what I really think of them... Would you rather know how above or below average you are at everything or know how above or below average people are at one skill/talent just by looking at them? I think I've got a pretty good grasp on how above or below average (mostly below average if we're keeping it real) I am at things so I'll glad take some random fact about some random person on the street Would you rather your only mode of transportation be a donkey or a giraffe As much as giraffe is the cool answer, the practical one is donkey. Reliable, are known for being able to transport things, plus they'd be easier to feed and maintain than a damn giraffe. Knowing my luck, if I did pick giraffe, I'd get Melman from Madagascar and he'd be an absolute pain in the ass to deal with. What songs are on your zombie killing soundtrack? Not a huge fan of sharing my song preferences, but alright, I'll give you five: Clear Eyes Full Heart, Can't Lose - T.Powell (my go-to generic pump up song) My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark - Fall Out Boy Thunderstruck - AC/DC Hip to be Square - Huey Lewis & The News Gloria - Laura Branigan (everyone always looks at me funny when they find out I like this but I don't care, it's an absolute banger) How do you handle drama? Do you feed into it? Try to Stop it? Ignore it? Just watch the Entertainment? The ball is drama and I'm Zion If you were on a death row, what would your last meal be? Definitely a massive plate of pasta. Although my favourite answer to this kind of question that I've heard is "If I was getting the electric chair, I'd asked for some unpopped corn..." Which Pokémon starter would you choose: Bulbasaur, Squirtle, or Charmander? Everyone picks Charmander because Charizard but honestly I'm going Squirtle because he's adorable but also because I find Blastoise cooler. C'mon, a giant turtle with two massive water cannons on it's back. Badass.
  3. I’m sure we’ve all heard of a good sporting curse. The Curse of the Billy Goat, where a goat and the words of his owner haunted the Chicago Cubs for 71 years before they finally broke it in 2016. The Curse of the Bambino (man, baseball loves a curse, doesn’t it?), where the sale of baseball’s GOAT consigned the Red Sox to 85 years of pain. The Madden Curse that had football players quaking in their boots when they were announced as the game’s cover star. I could go on and on and pad this article out with more, but you get the picture But now, a new challenger has entered the curse picture and it’s right here in the EFL. I’m talking about what I’m calling the Higgo4 curse. A curse that affects any team that one of my players is on and effectively dooms them. Need some evidence? Well, let’s start with Oregon, the first team I had a player join. Season 14 was the season before Hunter Higgins became a Duck. Oregon finished 11-3, knocked off Texas in the playoffs, before falling agonizingly short against LSU in the National Championship. Still, things are looking up and Oregon will be right back in the mix, right? Well, Higgins joins in Season 15….and the Ducks finish 6-8, 4 games back from playoff contention. That’s followed up with a 4-10 campaign and to cap off Hunter’s time as a Duck, Oregon goes 7-7, good enough for a playoff spot in the East. There’s dancing in the streets of Eugene as the Ducks are headed back to the playoffs…is what I would be saying except Oregon is in the west and instead is 5 games behind second placed USC. So, Hunter leaves Oregon at the end of last season with 0 minutes of playoff action to his name. How are the Ducks faring this season without my guy on the team? They’re only undefeated at 6-0, the best team in the NCAA and absolutely flying atop the West. The more level-headed and reasonable among you might attribute this to the fact Oregon have a heap of uncapping players this season but the more crazy and supernatural thinking individuals can see this for what it really is: A classic case of a curse being lifted What’s that, you need further proof? Well, let’s look at my other college team, Alabama. Again, my player Tyson Kelly joins in S15 and Alabama’s record was 7-7, one game out of a playoff spot. Bama’s record the season before I joined? 4-10? Well that doesn’t fit my narrative of a curse…except we have to consider that in my first season, Kelly barely saw any playing time. The next season saw an uptick in Tyson’s involvement, as he briefly became The Slot Machine and was a solid receiving option. This uptick corresponding with a dip in record to 5-9. Bama’s record in my third and final season when Kelly was the featured man on offence? 1-13. Takes until Week 12 for Alabama to get a win. Again, some of you (and by some I’m guessing most) would attribute this significant drop in record to having their starting QB leave and having to start a freshman at QB, along with a lot of the roster being freshmen…but those with a broadened perspective and who truly know the ways of the Higgo4 curse can see this is just another case of the curse striking mercilessly. Incidentally, Alabama is currently 1-5 without my presence on the team, but it only took them two weeks this time to register a W. Coincidence? Impossible By now, you’re probably wondering if this is just a college curse. Oh contraire monfre, I’ve brought this with me to the EFL as well. San Antonio, a playoff team in each of the last 2 seasons, drafts my guy Tyson Kelly 14th overall and gets him involved fairly regularly in the offence. Our record thus far? 1-5. Not saying playoffs are completely out of reach, it’s still a possibility, but it’s far from an ideal start. Not only that, I’m not sure if this has been mentioned at all, but we have outgained our opponents, yards-wise, in 3 of those 5 losses. It’s as if the curse is laughing at us, mocking us, saying “no matter how well you play, thou shalt not defy the curse” (although heretics those with a differing view might just put this down to the sim being whack) This brings me to Memphis, who were a 1-13 rebuilding team immediately prior to drafting Hunter Higgins 9th overall. The Mambas have started life with Hunter 1-5, but notably got their first win in Week 1, eight weeks earlier than it took them last season. Positive signs, right? Well, I fear that this may simply be a case of what we in the curse community term Delayed Effect Curse, where the curse lingers, but its full impact is not seen immediately. Beware Memphis. Beware So, what have we learnt? I may or may not be cursed. There may or may not be very simple and more plausible explanations for this team misfortune. Which is it? That’s for you to decide, for I am merely laying out the facts. The choice to believe or disbelieve is in your hands.

  7. If you were a fart, would you rather be the ‘loud and proud’ type or the ‘silent but deadly’ type? Generally speaking I'd be a loud and proud, let the world know type HOWEVER there are a few occasions where I'd get my stealth on: a) During a minute's silence b) At a funeral c) At the end of Higgo4's date with Christina Hendricks where he's just about to seal it with a kiss but is suddenly overcome with nerves That last one especially How many second graders do you think you could fight off before you become overwhelmed? Not an exact number but I reckon I could handle them until one of them inevitably goes low, that'll spell the end of me If you were a chair in our ( or your) team's LR, who would you like to sit on you? I'm quite happy to be the half-broken chair in the corner of the room that nobody sits on How awesome are your pajamas? Nowadays it's "what's a pajama?" but back in the day, mine were and the envy of all my friends at our sleepovers If you could shoot one condiment from your belly button, what would it be and why? This right here is a pure HuddleHussy question. I guess I'll go with old reliable tomato sauce (or ketchup for the rest of you), for the pure convenience of others that are playing pass the parcel with one bottle. Thanks for the disturbing image you've created for me Milk before cereals, or cereals before milk? Cereal before milk and I will happily question the mental sanity of anyone who chooses the other way round What is something your parents or friends would warn me about you? They'd likely warn you to never compliment me about anything, because it will be immediately followed with some sort of self-deprecating comment from yours truly Would you rather own a dragon or be a dragon? Being a dragon would be awesome except for the fact that you just know there's a nutjob poacher out there that's going to try and hunt me down and skin me for some purses and as much as I'm a damn dragon, even dragons have to sleep...at which point said poacher will strike. So own a dragon it is

  10. Hunter Higgins on starting life in the EFL I know a lot of players will say this once they are drafted and their first EFL season approaches, but it's just such an exciting time for me right now. There are a few nerves, I'm not too proud to not admit that, mainly just with the adjustment and step up from college ball but I know once those first few games start and I get used to it all, I'll be fine. Preseason gave me a taste of what it's going to be like and I'm reasonably pleased with how that played out from a personal perspective and more importantly from a team's point of view. That’s the sort of production and level of play I’m hoping to sustain throughout my entire rookie season It's been fairly well documented the youth we've got here in Memphis and it's a great bunch to be joining and I'd argue the perfect time to do so. The grind from the bottom just makes getting to the top even sweeter and with the amount of talented younger guys we've got that are going to develop together, it won't be too long until Memphis rises again But I don’t want to look too far ahead. Instead, I’m just focused on this season. It’ll likely be something of a learning year for me and I know I’ll probably be moved around the defence a little to find where I’m going to be best suited moving forward. I’m glad to have the kind of versatility in me and appreciate the faith our GM has shown in me already to be considering that Here’s to a great season for not only myself, but the entire Mambas team.
