Hank the angry drunken dwarf, how we miss you.

Isn't that supposed to be "Little Peolple" baseball?

They like to be called Small People. Call um a midget and you'll get a kick to the shin.

I know. Because I am a Small Person. AKA Midget.

Shouldn't your name be "Smalldork666" then?

We've been out of the trees for hundreds of thousands of years to reach this point? I'll take that apocalypse now please. And a beer. And more boobies.

That sucks. I thougth it was played by midgets. Then I read age limit is 13. Isn't this more like pee-wee football.

I am owed one click by Fark for the misleading headline.

This has nothing to do with baby-armed midgets. At least not the throwing variety.

I feel robbed.

I read the story, only to find they're talking about little kids. My hopes of seeing cheerleading dwarfs smashed. Curse you fark! Another kitten is saved..
2002-09-30 04:01:58 PM  
Yeah, this story has nothing to do with midgets. Here I was, all excited, hoping for photos of dwarves playing football -- but instead, I found out it's just kids. Feh.
2002-09-30 04:03:29 PM  
I was expecting midgets, not pee-wees! I want my midget football.

Writer of the headline- I knew very well... You've brought it out of me and I feel compelled to admit that... Yes I knew very well about them and yet... said nothing... great is my shame.

Misleading headline, but an alarming tale of parents turning what's supposed to be for the kids into another chance to let their egos run loose like so many rabid razorback gorillas on acid.

Don King, your new career is calling...

What do these parents think this is, little league baseball?

There should have and International Small Persons Football League (ISPFL?). That would be much better than the NFL crap they have now.
2002-09-30 04:32:06 PM  
The headline's not really that misleading, as the story is exactly as described in the headline.

Although like most of you, I am disappointed that it wasn't about dwarves. :(
2002-09-30 04:38:33 PM  
I feel robbed, I was hoping for some dwarves.
2002-09-30 04:47:42 PM  
What this country needs is an all midget pro football league. That would rock. And they'd have to wear top-hats on the sidelines once they took their helmets off. I'd watch it - couldn't be worse than the XFL.

"Forged documents, public drinking, massive fistfights..."

Sounds like a typical weekend at the Kennedy compound in Hyannisport.

those midgets are so short tempered.

I hope that joke does not go over their heads.

I have had it down to here with the short jokes.

A psychic midget escaped from prison.

The police issued an APB for a (are you ready for this?)
"Small Medium at Large".


well, hell, no I'm not...I thought it was funny.
2002-09-30 07:19:52 PM  
This is what the XFL was missing! I'd watch this. Fark! I'd tape every game and archive it so future generations can enjoy it. Sorta like NFL Fillms...Spanky Coltraine will be the Steve Sabol of Midget Football

Now if we can get all Midget Sports on one network, That would be sweet! Midget wrestling, Dwarf tossing and Midget football....I have a new calling

Where have you been all my life you beautiful, beautiful little men?

thought #1: "Yeah, i'm only 12. It says here on my driver's license."

thought #2: "I think it's safe to say all these people are here to see some FOOTBALL!"
"Um, John, we're in a commercial."
"I know, i'm just trying to make small talk. Come on... FOOTBALL!"

Not to get all serious on this thread but I coached this age group in football. The things they described happen in almost all the leagues like this. Buncha has-been or never-was parents thrusting their kids into the limelight to make themselves look good to the other yuppie scum parents.

Couldn't get out of the coaching position fast enough.

Now back to your regularly scheduled farking...
