Andy Griffith died this morning.
Here’s the recording of his amazing 1953 comedy record, What It Was, Was Football, set to illustrations that accompanied the lines to the monologue in a 1958 issue of Mad Magazine. I could go on and on and on and on and on, and probably will eventually go on and on and on, about what Andy Griffith’s work has meant to me, how it has defined me, how it has made me skip school just to cuddle up with it.
But the eagle-eyed among you can probably get an idea of his influence at around the 2:11 mark. (Just to be on the safe side, maybe don’t tell anyone.)
We’ll likely have more Auburn-related, Mayberry-themed content posted throughout the day.
