I am a woman, but I still say, Football..You Bet!
18 July 2013 | by wiccan333See all my reviews

The odd thing is, I had forgotten where that line came from until I looked up Stuart Pankin and saw this show and "The Line". I thought "OMG! THAT is where it comes from!"

1977-78 was my senior year in high school and I was so busy making sure I had my civic/scholastic ducks in a row for college resumes and a scholarship. I only watched a few of the episodes from the show, but I use the line a lot. Like every time my hubby and I get out of the car to go into Costco or Walmart, one of us says, "Football" and the other says "You Bet!"

It is always in the looking back, comparing shows of then to shows of today we think of the old ones as lame or boring or whatever the description. But truthfully, it is today's shows that are boring. All cookie cutter, all ridiculous angles and quick cuts. I stopped watching television in 2003. We have a TV to play DVD's, but television programming stinks anymore. Maybe if television programming had more "lame" programs like this I'd buy cable again...but I'm not holding my breath.
