Re: This is football comedy gold

Wow that's some funny stuff. Even the comments are funny. This comment from the Eagles post had me cracking up:

There is guaranteed to be at least one game this year in which the Eagles are down by between four and eight points and the following sequence takes place:

Quarter: 4, time 1:10

1st and 10, Eagles ball, opposition 15
M. Vick passes incomplete left to J. Maclin (1:02)

2nd and 10, Eagles ball, opposition 15
M. Vick passes incomplete middle to B. Celek (0:55)

3rd and 10, Eagles ball, opposition 15
M. Vick SACKED for -7 yards, FUMBLES. Ball recovered by Eagles (T. Herremans). (0:44)
M. Vick INJURED, will not return.
Eagles CHALLENGE ball spot. Call upheld, Eagles charged with timeout.

4th and 17, Eagles ball, opposition 22
N. Foles passes complete middle to J. Avant for 18 yards. FIRST DOWN. (0:35).
Eagles timeout

1st and goal, Eagles ball, opposition 1
L. McCoy runs up middle for no gain. (0:30)

2nd and goal, Eagles ball, opposition 1
L. McCoy runs up middle for no gain (0:15)
Eagles timeout

3rd and goal, Eagles ball, opposition 1
L. McCoy runs up middle for no gain (0:09)

Time expires, end of game. Eagles lose.

I also cracked up when I realized the ball magically moved from the 4 yard line to the 1 yard line.

Anyway, Drew Magary writes some funny stuff. I must have spent three or four hours on that site. And this surprises me because I read his book, The Postmortal, a few months ago and it was pretty serious.
