Today you have both Autumn the Puppy AND Piper D. Katt here as the Sunday Funnies presents its annual salute to The "Big" Game.🏈
That's right Autumn. Of course since The Free Choice E-zine is not an official sponsor, we can't call the event by it's real name, but we can
cash tie into it like anyone else.
Yes, and we've been skewing this thing for quite a while now.
Personally, I've never seen the point of football.
It has two Autumn. One on either end.🏈
I know that Piper. What I meant was that I just don't understand the game. For one thing, owners spend all that money funding and equipping their respective teams and all they get in return is a quarter back?😉
Yeah, and the game looks rough to me. All that blocking and tackling. If they didn't want the other side to accomplish anything with the ball, why give it to them in the first place?
They call it a "pig skin" because at one point the balls were originally made out of pig hides!
Of course Batman would never allow any black colored footballs to exist because he's sworn to protect Goth Ham. 😉
Did you hear about the football player who had an emergency and tried to get a hold of his coach at home?
When the wife answered the phone and told the player the coach wasn't home, she then asked the man for his number.
"3," said the player, before he hung up.
Can you imagine a grade school coach explaining football to kids?
"The game helps you develop individuality, initiative, and leadership skills. Now go out there and do exactly what I tell you to."
Of course, this year's game is entirely different for obvious reasons 😷 but I do like the fact that about the only real in stadium audience this year will be invited local medical personnel who get to see it for free!
And before we go, we cannot forget our other annual "Big Game" tradition.
To conclude this post, we 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!
So on that note♫, have a great week everybody!
And please be back here with us next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!—AtP and PDK.
