An American football coach walked into the changing room before a football game.
He looked over to his new signing and said, “I’m really not supposed to let you play since you failed basic arithmetic, but we need you to be in the team right now. So, what I have to do is ask you a math question and if you get it right then you will be allowed to play. Understood?”
The player nodded in agreement.
The football coach looked into his eyes intently and asked him, “Okay, now concentrate hard and tell me the answer to this. What’s two plus two?”
The new signing thought for a moment and then answered, “four”.
“Did you say four?” the football coach exclaimed, excited that the player had actually got the right answer.
Suddenly, all the other players on the team began shouting, “Come on coach, give him another chance!”
