..."Elegant Elmer" Lach peered through the whirling blizzard and watched the Orc Blitzer No-Hands Brawns smash its way through the Habs' line, ball in hand and poised to make an touchdown run. Smirking, he drew a thin black wand from his sleeve and readied it. He'd paid good gold for this Magic Item - a wand of smashing, according to the goblin who sold it to him - and now was the perfect time to use it and launch the humans' counterattack.
Roaring, he leapt into the cage and levelled the wand at the Orc, speaking the magic incantation that increased Elmer's natural strength and he jabbed forward with the wand, expecting to deal a mighty blow.
The orc was nudged back a bit, but otherwise nothing happened.
As Elmer was smashed to the dirt by a flurry of Orcish fists, he thought back to the goblin who'd sold him this wand. Come to think of it, wasn't that goblin dressed in the Orange-and-Blue colours of Da Orc Kestra...and didn't he bear more than a passing resemblance to the goblin frantically calling for the pass in the endzone...?
[Despite this setback, the Habs barely held on to a 1-0 lead in the half, chiefly thanks to No-Hands Brawn slipping in the thick snow right juuuust before he was in range to deliver a short pass to the goblin wiiiide open in the endzone...]
