By Grabthar's Hammer...what plagiarism!

Many have asked "why are you called Grabthar's Hammer?"

The answer is that it is my favourite catch phrase in the NFL column of Gregg Easterbrook (Tuesday Morning Quarterback). Yes, to those who are poised to complain it was also an hilarious theme device in the movie Galaxy Quest as well, delivered dryly by Alan Rickman ("By Grabthar's Hammer...what savings!").

But the quote below is a good example of why I like the phrase and use it as my blog's title.

In other NFL news, Eli Manning winced on national television when he was chosen first overall in the 2004 draft by the San Diego Chargers. He hung his head like he'd been stood up by his date for the senior prom. Eli Manning had been chosen first in the NFL draft yet felt sorry for himself -- because every single little thing was not exactly precisely the way he wanted it! Only in America could someone who has just been chosen first in the NFL draft feel sorry for himself. Anyway, on Sunday night, the Chargers, shunned by Manning, hosted him and his Giants and pounded the stuffing out of them, 45-23. By the Hammer of Grabthar, they were avenged!

I'm so sad now. I always assumed it was based on Galaxy Quest.
