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.

Well my friend NFL and Pee-Wee football are TOTALLY DIFFERENT! Besides the ball never hit the ground! The "fat kid" as you call him tossed it up and over his head were the other player caught it befor it hit the ground so the ball is still live!

That is true except for on fourth down plays. Not sure if it was 4th down or not, though. Plus the poster before me is correct, we are talking pee-wee football here.

It was 1st down, and no they were not fumbles, they were what is called laterals or lateral passes which you can toss to another player as long as he is not ahead of you. You can clearly see that the players intentionally tossed the ball and not accidentally drop it.
