You're Killing Me, Squalls

by Dye Mad Yarns


Part of our SnOhio collection, inspired by the Ohio Turnpike's 2022 Name-A-Snowplow Contest Winners, is You're Killing Me, Squalls. This name is a pun from the phrase "You're Killin' Me, Smalls" from the 1993 movie, The SandlotThe movie revolves around a boy named Scotty Smalls who moves into new neighborhood and is taken under the wing of the local boys and taught to play baseball.

On two separate occasions in the film, Scotty Smalls displays ignorance about some part of childhood the other boys regard as essential. In the first case, the character Ham Porter asks him if he wants a s’more. Misunderstanding the question, Smalls asks, “S’more what?” After a bit of back-and-forth, Ham exclaims in exasperation, “You’re killing me, Smalls” and explains what a s’more is.

Our color way for "You're Killing Me, Squalls" is a sand color with hints of baseball stitch red and uniform blue.
