The Laws of Football

|

Earlier this morning I heard that Alabama has passed the so-called Tim Tebow Bill. You’ll all be surprised to know that this bill has nothing to do with wanting to be a quarterback, but not actually being good at being a quarterback, but still being allowed to pretend you could be a quarterback.
