Of course people said it. Marcia getting smacked in the face with a football is arguably the show’s best-known scene. Google “Brady Bunch GIF” and that’s what you get.
Did you see that Inside Edition segment? That’s where they went.
Ashley Ward even looks like Marcia Brady. Pretty. Blonde. Football face.
“Yes, people definitely brought that scene up!” says Ward, whose poorly-timed attempt to catch a Daniel Carlson kickoff during Auburn’s win over LSU instantly went viral. “It’s so funny because that is one of the only episodes I remember from The Brady Bunch.”
“I was compared to her a few times and was actually called the real-life Marcia Brady by a few people.”
Speaking of the real-life Marcia Brady, she was interviewed Monday on the greatest morning radio show ever. And, of course she knew about it. And of course she gave Ashley an encouraging “War Eagle.”
