A football story

The coach had put together the perfect team for the New Orleans
Saints. The only thing missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted
all the colleges and even the Canadian and European Leagues, but he
couldn't find a ringer who could ensure a Super Bowl victory.

Then one night, while watching CNN, he saw a war-zone scene in
Afghanistan.

In one corner of the background, he spotted a young Afghan Muslim
soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand-grenade straight
into a window from 80 yards away. Then he threw another from 50 yards
down a chimney, and then hit a passing car going 80 miles per hour.

I've got to get this guy!" coach said to himself. "He has the perfect
arm!"

So, he brings the young Afghan to the States and teaches him the great
game of football ....... and sure enough the Saints go on to win the
Super Bowl.

The young Afghan is hailed as a hero of football, and when the Coach
asks him what he wants, all the young man wants to do is call his
mother.

"Mom," he says into the phone, "I just won the Super Bowl!"

"I don't want to talk to you," the old Muslim woman says. "You
deserted us. You are not my son!"

"Mother, I don't think you understand," pleads the son, "I've just won
the greatest sporting event in the world!"

"No! Let me tell you," his mother retorts. "at this very moment there
are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of
rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives
last week, and I have to keep your sister in the house so she
doesn't get assaulted!"

The old lady pauses then tearfully says,

"I will never forgive you for making us move to New Orleans"
