R.I.P. Andy Griffith: Football-Style

Little did anyone know, Mayberry R.F.D.'s Andy Griffith saw his first football game a long time ago and originally had no idea what he was witnessing. In this YouTube video, Griffith did a comedy show way back in 1953 on his first football experience.

Unfortunately, there was no accompanying video, so a skilled cartoon-ographer (?) had to visually describe as best as possible. Griffith uses his slow, witty delivery, and with his strong southern drawl, makes it a truly enjoyable listen.

Sit back, relax, or talk a walk down the dirt road and skim a stone across the pond. Then enjoy this short story to appreciate the man that had a pretty long and successful Hollywood career. Rest in peace, Andy Griffith.
