Andy Griffith’s What It Was, Was Football   Leave a comment

Andy Griffith, graduated with a Bachelor in Music from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill in 1949.  He recorded this classic comic monologue in 1953. It was a commercial success, and catapulted Griffith’s career forward to Broadway, and, eventually, Hollywood.

The text for the monologue was combined with cartoons drawn by George Woodbridge, which were published in the July 1958 MAD Magazine.  This video will give you a new perspective on what everybody’s cheering for.
