‘Maybe Football is, Like, Not Good’: Watch This Drunk History Lesson on Football From FS1’s Katie Nolan

screen-shot-2016-10-20-at-2-52-29-pm-1“The Comedy Central show Drunk History invited Fox Sports 1’s Katie Nolan to share a boozy historical anecdote this week about Teddy Roosevelt‘s role in bringing the forward pass to football.

If you’re not familiar with Drunk History, the premise involves celebrities and other contributors telling historical tales while ostensibly inebriated. Here’s an excerpt of Nolan’s Teddy Roosevelt story, verbatim:

So Teddy Roosevelt decided “Football’s fantastic. Buuuuuuut, maybe a little bit too violent. Like, maybe we could calm it down.”

And you know, in his spare time, he was President. So he ended the Russo-Japanese War, and then, was also like “I’m gonna fix, I’m gonna save football.”

So…anyway…what was I talking about?

We’re not entirely sure, but we know it’s worth watching above, via Comedy Central.
