Think I'll punt a nice 386sx board in the case..
PUNT??? BOOTING ain't good enough for ya, now your down to last & five? (Sorry, American "football" reference...).
Sorry, I don't get the football reference...at all LOL
I remember a football game (i.e. American football) on the C64 which was step based and you chose tactics and counter tactics for every move. Punt was among the last options one would choose, but I never quite figured out what every tactic did in comparison to the other. Perhaps there was a fair bit of random too.

Punt is what you do when you're about to turn over control of the ball to the other team. The idea is to kick it as far as possible, to make it more difficult for the other team to return with it.

i still can't figure out why american football is called football, when they use their hands most of the time.

My ol' man used to call it "feetball" since they use both feet...
