Corpus Christie, TX. Gone are the good old days of double and triple overtime. "We don't need no sissies waving pansy-ass rule books in our faces to tell us how to settle a score! We'll bring new meaning to the term sudden death overtime!" chanted demonstrators as the City Council's recently proposed legislation was passed unanimously.
According to new guidelines, the games will be decided in the following manner. At the end of a tied game, each team will select one dad to fight against a dad from the other team in successive rounds. Each round will yield one "winner". At the end of a round the winning dad will fight the next dad selected by the other team, and so on. At the end of all the bouts, the winning team will be decided by whichever dad is still standing.
All eyes are on the Texas city and its new motto, "Let the Dads Decide!" which is emblazoned across the city's water tower. Many speculate it's just a matter of time before shrewd venture capitalists take a trademark on the new slogan. It could very possibly acquire the same status as "Just Say No!", "Where's the Beef?" "Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun." and let's not forget the all time favorite, "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up!"
