Football tries to escape in Raiders vs. Ravens game

After a muffed punt by Phillip Adams of the Raiders, the ball had a chance to run away.

Until footballs have the right to vote, they're going to try to make a run for it whenever they get the chance. They're tired of being imprisoned, forced to do the bidding of greased up, sweaty guys in uniforms. Footballs never get to unionize or get a minimum wage or health care or benefits.

Nobody ever thanks the ball for being such a hard worker, for creating such a tight spiral, for bouncing just the right way, for being kind of sticky so that a running back can hold it well and score a touchdown.

When footballs have a chance to escape, you'd better believe they are going to give it their all. Like this brave football soul in the Oakland vs. Baltimore game.
