This tale comes to us as the (Thank the Heavens) season begins. Gill Krebs posted it to yahoo’s pun group.
Julius Caesar, Mark Anthony, and Brutus decided to go to a football match one Saturday. Roma was playing local rival Sparta for the All Holy Roman Empire Cup. So Caesar organized the tickets and they all agreed to meet at the stadium at 3 p.m., just in time for the kick off.
Saturday arrived and Caesar and Mark Anthony took their seats just as Roma kicked off. Brutus, however, was missing. Then, just before half time, in came Brutus looking a little flustered.
“My chariot lost a wheel on the way here,” explained Brutus. “It took nearly an hour to fix it.” So he sat down with the others as the teams came out for the second half.
“How’s Roma doing?” asked Brutus.
“Great!” replied Mark Anthony, “they have never played better.”
“So, what’s the score then?” Brutus inquired.
“8-2, Brutus,” replied Caesar.
