One day the professor shocked the class when he came in. He looked to

As much as I like it, it's not related to Tactics & Training, well except for the lesson we all might hope the perfesser got there. ;) That's what I call trrrraining!

Alas, it's not related to anything about this forum or any other on TFL, either. Sorry. ;)


(Good one, though.)
