Quick Shift: A Hoon-worthy NFL Player?

Ray Lindenburg September 24, 2012 Quick Shifts

Believe it.  Alfred Morris, a rookie running back for the Washington Redskins was born in 1988.  Why is that important?  Other than to make the rest of us feel old?  Its because car he drives to work every day was built in 1991.  And it’s not a classic Mustang Five-point-oh – no, it’s a Mazda 626.  Not even an awesome and rare GT Turbo hatchback.  It’s a DX.  With a stick shift and poverty-grade wheel covers (all present and accounted for).

In light of a seemingly unending stream of NFL and other professional athletes declaring bankruptcy, it’s nice to see a more reasonable attitude toward material possessions – according to Morris, the car “keeps me grounded, where I came from and all the hard work for me to get to this point.”

According the the article posted on The Redskins Blog, Morris even learned how to drive the manual-transmission-equipped ride when he first bought it as a college junior.  He also plans on keeping it on the road and bequeathing it to his children someday. 

So for those of us who have nursed a ragged old car, or learned to drive stick on the fly, here’s a good candidate for your Hoon-based Fantasy Football team.

    At least he could get someone to fix that rear quarter.

    Isn't that 626 from the generation that has the center a/c vent that automatically sweeps back and forth? I can remember riding in one that had that feature, around that time.

    • racer193 says:

      Yes the center vents swival in that generation. I had the GT version of this car as my first car in the mid ninties(actually my third car, but first really decent car) loved smoken five point ohhs off the line but front wheel hop was brutal.

    • pj134 says:

      The last generation did as well.

      I wonder which one it started on…

    Alfred Morris would be a welcome addition to my team – the Fukushima Mutants. Incidentally, I saw a first gen 626 coupe at the auto parts store the other day. The first I'd seen in perhaps a decade. It made me sad that the thin bodywork was rotting away.

    • longrooffan says:

      I had a tudor 626 first gen as well. My then wife's nephew got it as his first car. Lasted him through college (SLU) and onto his first job in Chicago where it promptly rusted away.

      • Alff says:

        I learned to drive in one. My wise but heartless father sold his 911S mere days before I got my learner's permit. The Mazda was a great car, but you could dent it with your thumb. I'm not surprised that rust has taken almost all of them. I also spent a lot of time driving first generation RX-7s, like the 626, they are exceedingly tail happy. Just the ticket for a young hoon.

      Is your mascot a turtle with an Italian name?

      • Alff says:

        No, it's actually a GT-R. Get it?

    Alfred Morris is already on the starting roster of the (soon-to-be) 3-0 Hawthorne Hoons!

    The 1-2 Arrogant Worms have him on the lineup. They lost in the first two weeks by a mere 3 points total, no fault to Alfred.

    • Dean Bigglesworth says:

      Hah, can't remember when i last listened to Arrogant Worms.

    I wish I could have a good football analogy to throw here, but I don't, so I'll switch over to something that our norther friends can understand.

    The day I felt old was the day when they showed Vincent Lecavalier on TV, and said "..the veteran centerman Vincent Lecavalier..". Hey! He was the 1st draft pick for my age group! He can't be a veteran! This was about 2 years ago.

    The second time I felt old was around March when someone criticized Tampa Bay Lightning for signing Mike Commodore saying that "we don't need another old and slow defenseman"… HEY! He's only 3 months older than I am! Stop it!

    • Alff says:

      I felt old the day Chris Osgood retired, as I was a season ticket holder for each of the seasons that he played for the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL, and I am a few years older than him. I still have one of his old sticks and goalie helmets from those days.
