Ohio State vs. Michigan humor

Got this from my Dad. Had me in stitches. There is always good humor/smack talking floating around this time of year as the game is on this weekend.


It is late in the OSU-Michigan game on an overcast day.
Michigan has the ball on the OSU 3, with 2 seconds left, and down 14-10.
There is time for one more play.

Lloyd Carr calls timeout.
As the team is coming to the sideline, Lloyd looks to the heavens and says,
"God - I've been a good man.
A churchgoing man.
I've tried to do what's right and I've never asked you for anything.
But, this is a big game and if I could get a little guidance, I would be forever grateful".

The clouds part, sun shines on Lloyd and he hears a voice bellow
"I Right 39 Pitch Trap".

Lloyd can't believe it!
God himself gave him the play!
It'll work for sure.

The team comes to the sideline and Lloyd excitedly gives them the play.
The timeout ends and the teams come back on the field.
Lloyd can barely contain his excitement - he's going to win.

Play resumes and the ball is snapped.
The Michigan QB pitches to the back.
For a split second, there's a hole - which is quickly filled by AJ Hawk,
who tackles the Michigan back short of the goal line.

Time expires and Ohio State players storm the field to celebrate.
Lloyd is in shock - he can't believe the play didn't work.

Lloyd looks to the heavens and cries,
"God - why did you call THAT play?"

God looks down, shrugs, turns to his right and says,
"Woody - why did we call that play?"
