Goober reports on thrillin’ game

Published 12:26 am Thursday, September 7, 2017

There was a very busy and excitin’ weekend of football. But one game went virtually unnoticed.
The game was played at the Cincinnati Zoo and it wuz between the big animals and the small animals.
Welp, the big animals wuz dominatin’ in the first half and took a 24-0 lead.
But when the second half started, the elephant got stopped fer no gain. Then the rhino was tackled fer a 2-yard loss. On third down the hippopotamus was sacked fer a 10-yard loss.
The second half continued on this way and the small animals rallied to win 28-24.
When the animals got in the locker room after the game, the small animals coach asked, “That wuz a great comeback. There seemed to be one player who was makin’ all the tackles and running fer all the yards and scorin’ all the touchdowns. Who wuz that?”
The monkey answered, “It was the centipede.”
The coach looked at the centipede and said, “You had a great second half. Where were you in the first half?”
The centipede answered, “I was gettin’ my ankles taped.”
That’s gittin’ a foot up on the competition.
