Why "hike" when you can fly?
Hello Everybody! Waxy Dragon here!
Once again, it is time for "The Big Game", since I'm not an authorized sponsor, so I can't call it by its proper name.
Anyway, all I know is that the pregame show has been going on since last Monday, and kickoff for this event is scheduled to finally begin shortly.

Now, I've heard footballs sometimes referred to as "pig skins", but I hope that's not true. Some of my best friends like Porky, Petunia, and Peppa are pigs. And I mean that in a good way.

I do agree with the fact that they always try to play the game someplace that neither side calls "home", but I'll tell you one thing. Considering the average size of adult dragons, I've seen much bigger bowls than the one they're playing football in today.

And why do they call the lead guy on each side the "quarter back"? Is that all the change he has left after treating the team to lunch?

At least with the end of football season, sports widows everywhere will discover they still have husbands.

And now, to conclude this special look at "The Big Game", I am proud to present a true comedy classic courtesy of YouTube, as Andy Griffith explains What It Was, Was Football. The illustrations in the video are by George Woodbridge, from the 1958 adaptation of Griffith's routine in Mad magazine!

Regardless of which team wins, hope you have fun watching the game, and please be back next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!—wd.
