Another 40ish dude who remembers "The Line", 15 December 2012
Author: Henry Saiia from Philly

OK, over the years I've sporadically used "The Line", including this morning when I used the line with my stepmother, who loves football but had no idea what the heck I was talking about. And of course I couldn't remember the show. I don't even think the writer remembers the show.

But through the magic of Google you can find anything, even this one-line wonder. So I figured I'd write down my homage to "The Line" here as well. And like the rest of you, I'm not even sure why it was funny at the time. Or why at age 11 I was even watching the show in the first place, especially with my 8 year old brother. I am grateful he watched it with me though, since he is the only other person I can mention it to that will understand the reference.

Hey, who knows why things stick with you. But one of the quirkiest, most fun things about life is that they do, and are sure to bring a knowing smile to your face, even if that makes the rest of the world question your sanity.
