Do you hear that? It’s the sound of America waking up from hibernation. Football season is here.

To celebrate, we dug through our archives to find our favorite football moments of the viral video age. Whether you’re a hardcore fan or someone who can’t tell Tom Brady for Greg Brady, these videos are sure to get you excited for the return of America’s favorite sport. So buckle your chin strap, pour out some Gatorade and get ready for a pigskin-themed trip through the Wimp archives.
Marching Band Forms Giant Football Player – December 11, 2010
Football fans love tradition and pageantry, and nothing embodies that more than marching bands. They are what make going to games worth it. Even if your team is struggling, you can always count on the marching band to be on point. The halftime battle of the bands is often just as exciting as the game itself and usually features less injuries. I would hate to be the band to follow this performance.
Canadian Football: The Most Bizarre Ending To A Football Game – November 2, 2010
We love Canada. They’ve brought so much culture and positive energy into the world. That being said, Canadian football is just plain weird. It looks like the sport we are used to but then there are three punts in a single play and no one has any idea of what is happening. Even the announcers seem to only be guessing at what the rules are. Maybe there are no rules. Who knows?
Dad's Reaction To Getting A Ticket To The Game – December 26, 2012
When all the yelling and touchdowns are over, it’s moments like this that make the sport great. This father and University of Alabama fan is completely overcome with emotion when his son surprises him with two tickets to the National Championship game. With all the strife and disagreement that exists in society today, we are guaranteed that for a few hours every weekend in the fall, thousands of people from every possible background will come together to root for a single team. Unity like that is pretty rare these days.
