There’s a flag down…

I just discovered that Target is selling penalty flags. You know, the little weighted yellow flag that the referees throw to signal a penalty when someone’s offsides or whatever. They have a little set for sale on one of the endcaps, along with other football party paraphernalia featured for the upcoming Super Bowl.

I so need my own penalty flag. Wouldn’t it be great to just throw that baby down when someone says something really stupid? Instead of yards, though, the penalties could be rendered in cash. “I’m sorry, but there’s a flag down. Fifteen dollar penalty to you for claiming that Vin Diesel is a good actor” or “Personal foul, for snidely questioning my navigating skills. Ten dollars.”

Oh, the possibilities are nearly endless!
