Screen pass

For several years now, I've been trying to fragment together a comedy trilogy about football. Ther action centers around a semipro team, the Louisiana Mantises, who play in the Continental Football Conference (CFC) of the National League of American Football (NLAF). Because I am absolutely blocked on blogging at the moment, I now present a line of dialogue that's been in my head for days:

"Louisiana Mantises? Where did that name come from?"

"With our budget, we'll have to pray for victory."

"But why the Mantises? Louisiana isn't known for its praying mantis population."

"Well, we were gonna call it the 49ers, but Louisiana jumped up to 48th in prevention of teen pregnancy."

The rest of the movie practically writes itself.
