  • Very eventful and it shows alot about Monica and Ross' past with their fighting.

    This episode is one of my favorites because it has everything you could ask for in an episode. It has Monica and Ross showing their competitive nature, Joey and Chandler fighting over a girl and she doesn't even end up with one of them and then you have Pheobe the persons who has never played football, and Rachel the girl who can't catch anything. If they had the episode without all the fighting it would have been crap b/c it is the best part. Ross and Monica have had this rivalry for years when they play football or anything. Since Joey always gets the girl he figured he could get the girl but Chandler wins and she picks him and Joey better get some tips on his geography and culture from Ross or Chandler. Since Chandler ruined it for Joey, Joey decided to ruin it for Chandler with their fighting and then neither of them got the girl. Since it was Pheobe's first time playing football she was excited yet she didn't do a good job. Except when her touchdown didn't count because the timer went. Rachel on the other hand can't catch anything or throw or play that well so she does all this stuff while the game is going on. When she finally catches the ball she misses the touchdown area and Monica and Ross fight over the ball like they used to. All in all this episode is amazingly awesome and I wouldn't change anything about it
