local humour

More funny for what it says about our local daily paper than what it says about sports fans:


Two boys are playing roller hockey in a schoolyard in Columbus,OH when one of the boys
is suddenly attacked by a crazed Rottweiler. Thinking quickly, the other boy takes the hockey stick, shoves it under the dog's collar, twists it and breaks the dogs neck, saving his friend.

A reporter from the Dispatch is strolling by, sees the incident, and rushes over to interview the boy. "Young Blue Jackets Fan Saves Friend From Vicious Animal" he starts writing in his notebook.

"But I'm not a Blue Jackets fan," the little hero replies.

"Sorry, since we're in Ohio I just assumed you were" says the reporter. and he starts writing again. "Buckeyes Fan Rescues Friend From Horrific Attack" he writes in his notebook.

"I'm not a Buckeyes fan either," the boy says.

"Oh, I assumed everyone in Ohio was either for the Blue Jackets or the Buckeyes. What team do you root for?" the reporter asks.

"I'm a Michigan fan," the boy replies.

The reporter starts a new sheet in his notebook and writes: "Little Bastard From Michigan Kills Beloved Family Pet"
