The actor Andy Griffith died yesterday as I’m sure most people know. Long before he became Sheriff Andy Taylor of Mayberry, he did a comedy monologue about football called “What It Was, Was Football”. It was about a guy from the hills seeing his first football game in Chapel Hill by accident. I thought it was funny when I first listened to it and I find it even funnier with this video footage.
While I may have disagreed with Andy’s politics in his later years, he was still a good actor and a true Tar Heel.
