There is an old, tasteless ethnic joke that goes like this:
Two football teams were playing a grudge match. The team consisting of Ethnic Group 1 battled the team consisting of Ethnic Group 2 deep into there fourth quarter.
With fewer than 5 minutes left in the game, someone fired a gun outside of the stadium. Ethnic Group1, thinking the game was over, trotted off the field and into the locker room.
Three plays later, Ethnic Group 2 scored.
I cannot help but wonder if the Cardinals were Ethnic Group 2, would they end up turning the ball over on downs?
