Shooter of the Month 'Redux'

theshooter.11111.jpgValued commenter, Extra P, recommended that we run over what 'The Shooter' is once again and since he's shilling t-shirts on his site today.....I figured I'd give a brief tutorial over what 'The Shooter' is, how it's done and why it should be important to you.

First of all, what is 'The Shooter'.....For those of you who never saw Rod Beck pitch, when he was in the 'stretch' position he would let his arm just hang down like a limp noodle while bent over at the waist. This looked pretty funny because Beck was, how shall I say it....not in shape. Unfortunately, I could not find a picture of him doing this while performing a Google search. Anyways, this was back in the day when my friends and I started to frequent bars and as an inside joke we would at times walk up to the bar and do 'The Shooter' on an unassuming girl. The ladies never really understood what we were doing as one of us stood there leaning over the edge of the bar with an arm hanging down and dangling while saying, "How are you doing?", with a group of guys laughing in the background. It brought a lot of laughter and enjoyment to us though, and it all started with Rod Beck.

** Oh yeah, we are selling t-shirts, too.

Now that you have a little bit of history you are probably wondering....how does one partake in 'The Shooter'? Well, let's have Bruce Paine give his rundown from a previous post:

doug.111111.jpgBruce Paine here children, and as you can see, cobrabrigade.com stands on the precipice of greatness.  With the Shooter of the Month we enter a new realm of web hilarity and social good humor.  But there are levels of Shooterhood to be evaluated, and the Brigade would be remiss if we didn't provide you with the most exacting breakdown possible of your monthly Shooter.  This initial Shooter of the Month is a real dandy.  When performing the Shooter location can mean everything, and this one is prime example.  The General Lee is the most legendary automobile of our generation, and our subject gets a big plus for that.  Anytime you are within spitting distance of the harbringer of the Lost Sheep, its a good day.  His stance is excellent even though it is left handed (southpaws will not be discriminated against).  His lead leg is bent and supporting his weight while his trailing leg is straight and stiff at the hip.  Classic style, great execution.  His limp a rm, or "hypnotiser" if you will, is hanging low and loose at the shoulder joint.  The back is straight and he is bent deeply at the waist.  That is good shootering, when employed upon a lady this is excellent technique that will close the space between you and the target while adding intensity and intimacy.

Finally, why should it be important to you....Well, you want to be on the Internet don't you? Just take a picture of yourself doing 'The Shooter' and email it to us. It doesn't matter where you are, who is around you or what you is going on.....we'll post it. We're supposed to have a 'Shooter of the Month' but based on the entries we've rec'd thus far....we'll just be posting whatever pictures we can get and then Cpt. Morgan and Bruce Paine will evaluate your performance. Sound like fun??? It does to me, so send us those pictures!

I personally feel that your baby is not worth a damn without a "Shooter" onesy...

The next thing you need is an "evolution" lineup - the monkey silhouette, then the cro-magnon, then the neanderthal, and then the shooter. Though I'm not really sure the shooter should be at the top of the evolutionary pyramid.

one day people will be wearing those 'shooter' tshirts to extravagant balls and gala's instead of tuxedos

The funniest thing is the thong saying it's "Made in the USA." I believe the shooter t-shirt is acceptable at most corporate Christmas parties these days so I'm sure the balls and galas are not far behind.

EP - the evolutionary lineup will be made...hilarious and great idea!
