funny at the time
7 May 2010 | by valleyvoiceSee all my reviews

I remember the show well. I was 13 at the time, and just like a couple of people recounted, the line "football you bet" was being repeated by a number of us the next day at school. Heck, the catch phrase may have even last a few days.

In that episode, the bums got a football team together, and as things went along they needed a kicker, who ended up being some foreign fellow who could only say the English words "Football, you bet." He had a permanent smile on his face -people would ask him questions and he'd say "football, you bet." He goes in the huddle, he's told what to do, and all he can say is "Football, you bet." I guess you had to be there - when you added in the accent he used, which we all mimicked the next day, it made for some pretty good TV hilarity for an adolescent in the mid 1970's.

Alas the show was cancelled a few weeks later - they never recaptured the magic again. I wouldn't mind seeing that episode again.- if I'm not mistaken it may have been the debut episode.
