Two basketball jokes; and then two football jokes:
“Basketball sure is an amazing game,” said one fan to another. “They pay a guy $500,000 a year to shoot the ball, and then they call it a free throw.”
“He’s great on the court,” a sportswriter said of a college basketball player in an interview with his coach. “But how’s his scholastic work?”
“Why, he makes straight A’s,” replied the coach.
“Wonderful!” said the sportswriter.
“Yes,” agreed the coach, “But his B’s are a little crooked.”
A college football coach had recruited a top talent, but the player couldn’t pass the school’s entrance exam. Needing the recruit badly, the coach went to the dean and asked if the recruit could take the test orally. The dean agreed, and the following day the recruit and the coach were seated in his office. “Okay,” the dean said, “What is seven times seven?”
The recruit mulled it over for a moment, then said, “I think it’s 49.”
Suddenly the coach leaped to his feet, “Please, Dean Smith,” he begged, “give him another chance!”

He woke with a start. “In whose favor?”
