“The worst play in football history.” That’s what Allahpundit of Hot Air calls it. The real egg-laying occurs at 1:40 into the clip.

Personally, I’ve seen worse. During my freshman year of high school, our varsity football team not only lost every game; they shut out of every game. In other words, zero points every time, got it? The most common offensive play appeared to be when the opposition piled onto the center just when the ball was snapped. At some point, we must have known that this wouldn’t get us anywhere. Then that same year, the varsity basketball team finished with an 0-18 record. Believe it or not, this actually got our school a mention in Sports Illustrated.

So now that football weather is here, we can look forward to more fun stuff on YouTube, and so it begins for this week’s Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy.

For our Bonus Whimsy, we take you now to Copenhagen, where it has just been announced that Chicago will NOT host the 2016 Olympics. It seems that the CNN reporter is beside himself at the inability of pure charisma, and the media hype that follows it, to successfully manipulate world events. Were that not enough, certain White House officials cannot resist the opportunity to say something stupid. Oh well, Rio de Janeiro won the bid for the Games.

Oprah’s not gonna like this.
