Baba snagged another big interview, this time with another star athlete-Bom Trady. WARNING: She doesn’t know a thing about football. She sent this exclusive report via some kind of writing with a quill pen on papyrus!
Baba: Good evening football fans and
all kinds of sports fans. I am here to interview a big name in a big sport.
Welcome to you Bom Trady. I know you’re rushed for time so we will make this swift, quick and fast, just like your arm. How would you evaluate the game of football today compared with say 50 years ago?
Bom: I don’t know because I didn’t play 50 years ago. What a dumb question.
Baba: (Hmm, a real mathematician.)
Well, why do they keep throwing around quarters? I thought betting on games was illegal except in some fantasy games?
Bom: Yes, a coin is thrown at the beginning of games to see who goes first. No gambling. The game is played in four quarters!
Baba: (This guy is touchy.) Ohhh, so that’s why the football announcers keep saying, “Quarterback!” They want players to give the quarters back! I get it.
Bom: Lady, you gotta be kidding me.
I’m outta here. I have to go warm up my arm. Bye.
Baba: Okay, Bom. Thanks for the informative interview and good luck with that heating pad on your arm even though it’s called Football, not Armball. (Personally I would warm up my foot.)
Bye Bom! Good luck and enjoy the game today.
Baba: Maybe sometime they will let me on the field and I can wear one of those cute black and white striped outfits the umpires wear with caps. Wonder why all the players wear helmets and all those big pads but the bravest ones in the thick of the game, the football umps, just wear b and w outfits and caps … not even helmets.
Until next time, rah rah rah from Bababa!
What a funny story…the quarters idea is very imaginative!! Another great one you two!!
She’s a real devious… uh…devilish reporter. Baba got overly confident after interviewing Eddie J.
