Call an Au­di­ble

Country - - JOKES - RANDY SEILHEIMER Vicks­burg, Michi­gan

Sev­eral years ago I was sit­ting at a col­lege foot­ball game with my 6-year-old daugh­ter. My team was strug­gling on the field and Car­rie could tell from my com­ments I was suf­fer­ing as only blindly loyal fans can. Ev­ery play my team ran ended in a fum­ble, in­ter­cep­tion, loss or sack. This be­ing Car­rie’s first game, my wife thought it wise if I ex­plained a few things to help her un­der­stand why I was up­set. Car­rie was an early reader and could fig­ure out many words with­out help. I showed her the words de­fense and of­fense in the pro­gram. I told her our team was on of­fense. She looked at the pro­gram, then looked up at me and calmly sug­gested, “Maybe they should be on the on­fense.” To this day we still cheer for the on­fense.
