Sometimes the lesson

Sometimes the lesson is not how to get your team to block a field goal, up by 2, when the ball is at the 12 with 6 seconds left. (I'm assuming your team lead isn't named "Knute".)

Sometimes the lesson is, WTF is your team doing in football uniforms in the first place, much less being on a football field, much less trying to beat teams that actually know from football and have practiced it since the age of seven.

So many failures begin with heroics. I wonder what America would look like if this was widely adopted? (My best guess: England. Which isn't even England anymore.)
