Summer has come and gone which means it’s time once again for gridiron greats to take the field. And comedy is no stranger to the parody of what some would argue as the nation’s new official “past time”. In fact, some of our favorite comedians and comedic actors once graced the field, helmet and all, only to leave that world for comedy. From comedian Gary Gulman who played TE for the Eagles of Boston College to Modern Family’s Ed O’Neill who signed a contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers all the way back in 1969, the two world’s combined lead to some of the greatest sketches and comedy routines in the medium’s history. So in tribute to another kick-off of yet another season, here are your Top 5 sketches about football from the likes of Inside Amy Schumer, Key & Peele, Saturday Night Live, Bob Nelson, and Mad TV. Sit back, relax, and grab your chips and dip and ask yourself, “Are you read for some football… sketches?”
