Let's play some football!
28 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Ingalls, Garveys, and Olsens are still far away from home. Charles convinces Albert Quinn to go to school by bribing him with a quarter a week. Naturally, a boy who swindles people will do anything to earn a quarter; but it turns out the joke is on everyone else since it seems Albert is one of the smartest kids in class.

But this episode is about a football game between the Winoka Warriors and the private school (sorry, can't remember the name). The first order of business is getting the biggest kid that can make the football team into the private school. Mr. Standish wastes no time in doing this. The next order of business is finding somebody to replace him.

Fortunately, Adam has a problem pupil who can do just the thing needed. with a little bit of tough love and a little bit of firmness, he becomes a good football player. In fact, in the game he...whoops...can't give that away!

Though these are not my favorite, it's still interesting watching the Ingalls' live and survive nicely outside of the element...
