Central basketball to replace tonight’s comedian show


SIMPSON — After the comedian scheduled for tonight’s Hump Day Ha’s show canceled last minute (supposedly due to a deathly fear of icy sidewalks), Central College’s basketball players agreed to fill in last minute. 

The rivalry game between Simpson and their sworn enemy was scheduled for tonight, but deciding that comedy entertainment was more important, the Dutch athletes felt obligated to lend a hand.

“All the guys on the team are really funny,” said Dylan Baldwin, the center for Central. “We’re used to people laughing at us, so this will at least bring in more people.”

Central has already submitted its comedy routine to CAB.  According to sources, the routine consists of half of the team throwing a ball that gets stolen by Simpson players, followed by them plowing into the ground out of sheer clumsiness.  During half-time, the benchwarmers will perform a short three-minute skit about their tryouts, entitled: “I just showed up.”

When asked how the team will do, senior point guard on Central’s women’s team, Alexis Farview, said, “I think we’re gonna do great.  We’re bound to get plenty of laughs and chuckles, regardless of how we do.  That’s one of the perks of being a Central student: people just laugh at you whenever.”

Both teams are confident in their performances, and they expect it to be quite the show.  The women’s game starts at 6 pm, followed by the men’s game at 8 pm.
