McGuire has a good sense of humor and he didn't need to warm up. When asked by CF.C to do a little word association on his primary starters on the offensive line, he had his foot on the gas at the outset.
CF.C: Gunnar Eklund.
CF.C: Eduardo Middleton.
CF.C: Joe Dahl.
CF.C: Riley Sorenson.
CF.C: Sam Flor.
CF.C: Cole Madison.
That last one required more of an explanation.
"This," said McGuire, "is about as American a tattoo as you can get: (Madison) has got a tattoo of Marilyn Monroe with a Statue of Liberty crown holding a smoking shotgun -- with an American flag kinda in the background.
"It doesn't get much more Americana than that. I mean, maybe if she was eating a piece of apple pie or something like that, maybe she'd be a little more American, but I don't know."
There was no immediate word on if Madison (pictured above) planned to book some ink time to correct the oversight.
