HIGH-SCHOOL-FOOTBALL PLAY OF THE MONTH SO FAR

Just the way the coach drew it up.

Looks like they're playing football's version of the Washington Generals.

'Way to run out the clock, (or a penalty for conducting an ill-timed game of hot potato).

Reminded me of Harlem Globetrotters. I have fond memories of Meadowlark Lemon, Curly Neal and Tex Harrison.

Where's the Stanford band?

I may be wrong but it looks like at one point somebody threw the ball to the referee.

Definitely needs "Yakety Sax".

What happens when you combine football and basketball.

Wasn't this play taken from the battle plan Napoleon failed to follow at Waterloo?

It's got everything in one play. Great skill. Complete incompetence. Dumb luck. Exhaustion. Total chaos.

I love football.

The only problem is that when they call the play, the huddle lasts two hours

These guys would make stellar rugby players.

@MOTW - I am not a basketball fan. However, the best game I ever saw in person was the Harlem Globetrotters with Meadowlark Lemon, Curly Neal and the rest. In 1967, my father took me to see them at the Forum in Inglewood, California (near LAX Airport). I have never forgotten how much fun it was, and how each member of the team made sure to include jokes and bits of physical comedy that the kids in the audience could appreciate. Long live the Harlem Globetrotters!

@MOTW and klezmerphan - Now that you mention it, my dad also took us to see the Harlem Globetrotters at a military base that happened to be near our house in Tokyo. I still remember how one of them left the court and pretended to flirt with some women in the audience before his teammates dragged him back into the game.

It *was* more entertaining than the NFL games, although I suspect that in college or pros the fumble-forward would have ended the play.

Nevertheless, it was great!
