In Football We Trust examines the “Polynesian pipeline” into the NFL through Mormon Utah:

The documentary could be considered a study in human biodiversity. You can’t help but notice that these young men are big, strong, fast, tough, and impulsive. One of the dads laments that he doesn’t have a short fuze; he has no fuze. All of the grown men in the family have personal problems; that is, they’ve served time in prison.

    That’s the one with the pointy ball?


  2. Isegoria says:

    It’s the one with the pointy ball that Americans (including Samoans) play. There’s another one with a pointy ball (slightly less pointy) that New Zealanders (including Maoris) play.

    Just for disclaimer, I stole this joke from Jamie of Mythbusters, where the running gag was how out of touch he is.

    It’s good because Americans never really know if you are joking or not…

    Hey Isegoria, the USA are the current Olympic champions at rugby. It’s been a while since 1924 though.
