The stooges are mistaken by a gangster for the "Three Horsemen of Boulder Dam", famous football players. Hired to play for his team, they blow the big game and get it in the end. Lucille Ball has a nice part as a gun moll.

When The Three Stooges as football players pile on to some photographers, director Ray McCarey wanted the Stooges to do the stunt themselves. They refused, saying it was too dangerous and to get stunt men to do it. McCarey assured them they wouldn't be hurt, but they still refused. McCarey got three stunt men to do it, and two of the three, as well as the actors playing the photographers, wound up with broken arms and legs. See more »

Gangster mistake the Three Stooges for professional athletes and get them involved in a football game with big cash on the line. Here's one of the better shorts from the series with non-stop gags, although most of the gags come from the first half of the film and not the second half that deals with the game. The various misadventures inside the girl's apartment are terrific and especially they escape down the shoot.
Now available on Columbia's 2-disc collection, which features over 20 shorts.
