Daryl had some friends come over from Europe and as a special treat he got tickets for them so that they could go to their first American Football game.
He had been really lucky and managed to get really good seats, practically on 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”, his wife Mandy said. “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 was confused and asked Mandy what she meant.
“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! I don’t see what all the fuss was about”.
