Strip by: Colin Foster

{A high school football field}
Oliver: So, Foreign Exchange Samantha, what do you think of the football game?
Samantha: Wait, this is a football game?
Oliver: Um, yeah.
Samantha: But where is the football?
Oliver: Uh, the quarterback has it.
Samantha: "Quarterback?" But... but he has rugby ball! It isn't a football! This makes no sense!
Samantha: This is not football!
Oliver, Delkin, Holly: {thinking} ?

I thought the punchline here was so obvious that I didn't need to put it in the strip.

Clearly, this doesn't have much to do with the regular Friday Night Lightning continuity. (Then again, there really isn't much continuity at all.) I just wanted to do it to show off Franklin High's mascot. Do you see it? You can groan now.

(Incidentally, I knew a Swedish exchange student in high school. She's a very cool girl.)
