Whilst watching this very funny clip this morning, I got to pondering: what’s the best way to do comedy in sports, particularly when you’re dealing with real athletes and teams, with legions of fans with very clearly formed opinions? Jason Sudeikis stars in this short film imagining what might happen when an American Football coach […]
