The Football Question

Charlie (9-year-old son): Which position in Football do you think is more “manly?” Quarterback or line backer?

Scott (forget-how-old-he-is father): I don’t know. Line backers do a lot of tackling. But quarterbacks have cool moves, they make the plays and they are the leaders of the team. Why are you asking me this?

Charlie: I want to be on a junior football league.

Scott: Really? I have one word for you – “concussion.” No way your mother is going to go for it.

Charlie: I have to live my life. Can you talk to her?

Scott: Nope.

Charlie: Once again…doomed.

Scott: One day, when your brain is working at full throttle, you’ll thank us.

Charlie: I doubt it.
