NFL Phone Service

John Madden was in New England to announce a football game one weekend when he noticed a special telephone near the Patriots' bench. He asked QB Tom Brady what it was used for and was told it was a hotline to God.   

John asked if he could use it. Brady replied, ''Sure, but it will cost you $200."  John scratched his head, then thought, what the heck, I could use some help picking games. He pulled out his wallet and paid the $200.  John's picks were perfect that week.

The next week, John was in New York when he noticed the same kind of phone on the Giants' bench. He asked what the telephone was for.  Eli Manning told him, "It's a hotline to God. If you want to use it, it will cost you $500." Recalling the previous week, John pulled out his wallet and made the call. Again, John's picks were perfect that week.

While John was in Green Bay, he noticed the same kind of telephone by the Packer bench. He asked #4, "Is that the hotline to God?" Brett said, "Yes, it is and if you want to use it, it will cost you 50 cents."

John looked incredulously at Mr. Favre and said, 'Wait a second! I just paid $200 in New England and $500 in New York to use the same phone to God! Why do the Packers only charge 50 cents?"

Brett replied, "You're in Green Bay. it's a local call!"
