Little Giants - The Holy Roller Rule
During the final play of the big game, which was called "The Annexation of Puerto Rico", the fat kid who plays center begins to run down the field with the ball. He is run down by a Cowboys player who tackles him, and forces the fat kid to fumble it backwards, where it is picked up by another Giants player and advanced down-field. Under the rules, during the final 2 minutes of any half, only the player who fumbled the ball may advance it. The play should have been called dead when recovered by the second Giants player. This rule is nicknamed "The Holy Roller Rule". I don't know if it applies in Pee-Wee ball, but I know it applies in the NFL.
