Passing A Football
"Can you tackle" asked the coach?
"Watch this" said the freshman and then proceeded to run smack into a telephone pole, shattering it to splinters.
"Wow" said the coach. "I'm impressed. Can you run"?
"Of course I can run" said the freshman. He was off like a shot, and, in just over nine seconds, he had run a hundred yard dash.
"Great" enthused the coach! "But can you pass a football"?
The freshman hesitated for a few seconds. "Well, sir" he said, "if I can swallow it, I can probably pass it".
