Legendary football announcer Keith Jackson was in Texas to announce a college football game when he noticed a special telephone near the Longhorn's bench. He asked a nearby Texas player what it was for, and was told that it was the "hotline to God."

Keith asked if he could use it. The player told him, "Sure, but it will cost you $10."

Keith scratched his head and thought, "What the heck, I need a break picking games." He pulled out his wallet and paid the $10. Keith was perfect that week with his football picks.

The next week Mr. Jackson was in Florida when he noticed the same kind of telephone on the FSU bench. He again asked what the telephone was for and was told, "It's the hotline to God. If you want to use it, it'll cost you $10."

Recalling the prior week, Keith pulled out his wallet and made the call. Keith was again perfect calling games.

The next weekend Mr. Jackson was in Nebraska at Memorial Stadium, when he noticed the same kind of telephone by the Cornhusker's bench. He asked a player, "Is that telephone the hotline to God?"

The player responded, "Yes, and if you want to use it, it'll cost you 25 cents."

Keith looked incredulously at the young man and said, "Wait a second, I paid $10 in Texas and Florida to use the same telephone to God. Why does Nebraska charge only 25 cents?"

The young man looked at Mr. Jackson and replied, "In Nebraska, it's a local call."

Hey Magicguy, just because you heard similar ones elsewhere doesn't mean you have to downgrade this one. It may be the only version on this site. You should rate it only on whether it is funny. If you don't think it is funny, just say so.
