The average time a football is in play during a game is 10:58.  The rest is replays, talking heads and watching guys line up and do pre-snap gyrations.

Time rolling around in pain on the pitch, acting as if you've been shot by a sniper from the stands so that your team can catch their breath from all the not standing around to ultimately very little effect: priceless.

Time running around playing keep away with the ball, 89 minutes. Time anything action wise happens, 1 minute!
If it looks like chicken, tastes like chicken, and feels like chicken but Chuck Norris says its beef, then it's beef.

If women had apostrophes instead of periods they would be even more possessive!
