What's On Television Saturday, October 16

Another Saturday, another college football Saturday (*Howard Dean noise*). Texas and Texas A&M have defining litmus test games this afternoon where as Houston and Rice battle for the Bayou Bucket in Space City. It's days like these that make you want to strap on your pads, put on a helmet, and hit someone. And If you weren't aware, playing college football is easy; just ask Talk Soup and NBC's "Community" 's Joel McHale:

No, I was horrible. I basically lied to get on the team. It was practically almost a dare: Come out for football. The coach was asking me all these questions, like, 'So, where you'd play.' -- 'Oh, at my high school.' I played freshman football. They didn't ever figure it out. I became big enough and fast enough that I was able to fool them. My 40-yard dash got to 4.6, and they were happy with that. I was 250, I looked and acted like a football player. . . . It just shows you; if you have a dream, just lie about it. Lie your way unto your dreams. I kind of did it on a whim, and it ended up taking two years of my life, but I got a Rose Bowl ring and a Rose Bowl jersey.

See? It's that simple. Hit the gym, trim a few tenths of a second off your 40, and lie to someone. You too can accrue meaningful, exclusive bowl swag.
