"What it was, was football" (1953)

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I've been thinking about this monologue since I saw that Andy Griffith was featured in the AARP magazine recently. When I was growing up, we had a record that had this on it.
I hope you'll get a laugh or two out of it. And you don't have to know anything about football to think it's funny.



(from YouTube)
Andy Griffith's famous 1953 stand-up monologue about college football. It has become one of the most beloved comedy recordings of all time.

The illustrations used in this video were drawn by George Woodbridge, a Mad Magazine artist.

One of my all-time favs. I also posted it about a year ago. And I loved his Romeo and Juliette one, too.

That's hilarious!!! Thanks for stopping by Jeremiah 29:11 and leaving me such sweet comments. And, about Oprah....I disagree with her on almost EVERYTHING...especially her beliefs in our Lord...or her non-belief, whichever it might be!!!
Blessings to you, Weezer...Deb
