Daryl had some friends over from Europe, and as a treat he got tickets so that they could go to their first American Football game.
He had managed to get really good seats, close to the 50 yard line and right above the home team’s dugout.
At the end of the game, Daryl asked his European friends if they enjoyed the game.
Eric said that he did, there was so much more going on compared to going to see a football (soccer) game in Europe.
“Yeah, it was great,” said his wife Mandy. “I mean, with all the players in those tight pants and stuff. I really enjoyed it too”.
She added: “The rules are pretty complicated though, I just don’t get why there is all that fuss about a quarter!”
Daryl is confused and asks Mandy what she means.
“At the beginning of the game,” she explained, “I saw the two guys flip a quarter. Then for the rest of the game, all they said was: ‘Get the quarterback! Get the quarterback!’. Hello! It’s only 25 cents!”
