For a $100

I actually got two laughs from the following--first simply at face value, and second in that it reminds me of the many grown men I see intent on trying to relive their past "sports glories" or in most cases compensating for their lack of sports glories...

--------------


"This is from a football Saturday at Notre Dame. We were walking by this group of kids playing football. My friend told them he would give them $100 if they kicked the ball off to him and he didn't run it back for a touchdown. He ran past most of the kids fairly easily, but 'had' to stiff arm the last kid."

-----------------

Yes "Big Boy," congrats on the touchdown and keeping the $100, but I hope these kids find you again in 15 years for revenge when they are over 21 years old and built like professional wrestlers.

Oh man! Good stuff. I wonder if you've heard the Bud commercial on the radio, the one that salutes the over zealous flag football playing idiot. I'll have to see if I can find it.

Yes! Found it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgnS9bmP_qw

Damn that was brutal.

I agree someone will come back and beat his ass later on in life.

hahaha bravo to the boy who took the hit, sounds like he put in great effort to ward off the bully! That's hilarious... nice find.

This is pathetic. Desperate for attention, this guy's ego drives him down the field…

Where he has to "strong arm" a kid — just so he can keep the $100 and win the day.

Way to go!

What an idiot. Just don't make the bet, so you don't have to resort to stiff arming a kid to win it.
