Flashback: “What It Was, Was Football” by Andy Griffith

With the college football season starting tonight in of all places, Australia, and with our local high school season starting last night in a few places, I thought I’d fire up this gem.

This record made Andy Griffith a household name, as he plays a deacon who had never seen a football game, and attempts to describe it. You have to remember this record was made in 1953, so it’s possible a southern church goer hadn’t seen a game on television as of yet, as not everyone had a TV at that time, and there weren’t a lot of stations on the air, either.
