watching an old episode of _coach_ (season 1 ep 2) i thought i heard
luther (jerry van dyke) utter the following line:

"i dropped on my knees, curled up in the feeble position, closed my
eyes and screamed my head off"

on repeated viewing it seems i heard him right.

side note: skateboarders apparently use this to refer to a position of
the board perched on the edge of a ramp. at least that's what this
video seems to indicate.
