Bubba: The Football Player
Bubba went to Alabama on a football scholarship. He was a good Crimson Tide running back, but a poor student.
At graduation day, Bubba didn't have enough credits. But he
was a great football star and the graduating students held a rally and demanded
the dean give him a diploma anyway.
They were so insistent that the dean agreed if Bubba could answer one question correctly he would give him a diploma.
The one question test was held in the auditorium and the graduating
students packed the place. It was standing room only. The dean was on the stage
and told Bubba to come up. The
dean had the diploma in his hand and said, "Bubba, if you can answer this question correctly I'll give you your diploma." Bubba said he was ready and the dean asked him the question. "Bubba," he said, "How much is three times seven?"
Bubba looked up at the ceiling and then down at his shoes, just pondering the question. The students began chanting, "Graduate him anyway! Graduate him anyway!"
Then Bubba held up his hand and the auditorium became silent. Bubba said, "I think I know the answer. Three times seven is twenty-one."
A hush fell over the auditorium and the Alabama graduating students began another chant. "Give him another chance! Give him another chance!"
