Sports Humor

The Rose Bowl Institute is dead serious about its mission to champion sportsmanship and sports values, but we also have a sense of humor.


Many sports figures are also known for their humor. “Humor is mankind’s greatest blessing,” said Mark Twain. We agree and offer these pages to instances where sports are the subject of good, clean humor. Please submit your favorite sports joke or humorous story.

Please remember this is a family site, so we will need to remove any submissions that are not suitable for youth’s consumption either in language or subject matter.
