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.
The Stooges are beggars in suits. They are hired to advertise the upcoming game at Boulder Dam in football uniforms, when they are mistaken for 3 great players by a gambler. But the trio can't turn down the big $ offer.Written by

The football teams listed on the scoreboard are in fact the names of two actual baseball teams, the Detroit Tigers and the Chicago Cubs. See more »
Near the beginning, when we first see Moe Howard, he falls in next to a passing pedestrian to ask for "a dime for a hamburger". The shadow of the boom mic following them can be seen on the sidewalk. See more »
Girls! I got em, I got em!
What, the dinner?
No, no, the three horsemen... Come in guys, and meet the girls!
Honey, will you marry me?
Oh toots, I'm telling you you've more than won me!
Low man again.
Woo, woo, woo!

With this fourth Three Stooges short, I feel like they’re growing on me as I liked it quite a bit! Racketeer Walter Long (a great Laurel & Hardy foil) needs players who can be bought for a fixed game he’s organizing. His moll (a young Lucille Ball) and her companions meet The Stooges dressed in football gear – the boys are down on their luck, so they accept a job advertising for a football team – and, mistaking them for star players, bring them home. After the initial misconception about the men’s presence in Long’s apartment – leading to a delightful chase involving a base-less dumb waiter – The Stooges find themselves in a football stadium trying to make head or tails of the game, to the chagrin of the sinister-looking gangster! The short’s football craziness and the hijinks in the apartment are clearly inspired by HORSE FEATHERS (1932), one of The Marx Bros.’ greatest vehicles.
