[ light laughter ] and this is true. with josh -- we would go play mini golf. and josh had just seen his first professional golf match. so he had never seen somebody, like, swing, like, a driver before. so i was standing behind him at a mini golf tee. and there was, like, a slight ramp up. and so instead of just putting harder, he, like, brought it back full driver-style and buried it in my eye.
[ audience ohs ] >> jimmy: oh, my gosh! >> yeah, then we had to go -- not really like -- i still have a tiny child scar. it's not big enough to impress people at a bar. [ laughter ] but, yeah. and then we were, like, driving to the emergency room. and josh was in the back saying that, like, ultimately it was my fault for standing that close to him on the tee. >> jimmy: very brilliant. [ light laughter ] were you ever forced to play a sport you didn't want to? >> well, we -- all right, josh and i would play football, like, every sunday with my dad. we would go out and, like, play, like, one-on-one football where my dad was the all-time quarterback. and it was, like, the exact kind of football i liked. because, like, the ball was nerf. my competition was a slightly smaller version of myself. [ laughter ] there was no tackling. and then, all of a sudden, josh decided one year, he wanted to play, like, actual pop warner football. and because he was my younger brother, and i was, like, competitive with him, i was like, "well, i'll play, too." so my mom drove us to the first
day of pop warner. and, like, we were different ages, so we were in different groups. and so, like, i went off in my group. and you had to do all this stuff. like, they sized you up for pads and all this stuff. it was, like, this a four-hour day. and i hated it. i was like, the first time somebody hit me, i was like, "oh, i've made a terrible mistake." [ laughter ] so then, i went back to the car at the end of the day. and josh was, like, in the car eating a meatball sub. they had, like, gone out to lunch because he quit football right away. [ laughter ] like, instantly quit. and the reason he quit was, like, when you had to try on your pads, like, obviously, they needed you to take off, like, you had to, like, strip down to your underwear to, like, try on football pants. and josh had not worn underwear. [ laughter and applause ] so they were like, "we need to you take your pants off." they were like, "we need to you strip down to your underwear." and he was like, "i'm out of here." and then my dad, who did not believe in quitting, would not let me quit. so i played a whole season of pop warner football. completely overlooking the fact that he quit. i mean, we were in the same position except i wore under pants and -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy: it could have been you. >> could have been me, yeah. >> jimmy: all right, good. you want to tap him on the shoulder, let him know we're ready to go? we're ready to go, man. all right, you can take off the headphones there. all right, josh, here we go. i asked seth two questions. the first question to see if you get a point.

putting, you're supposed to stand behind them. >> on a mini golf course, you can stand wherever you want.

[ laughter ] >> but it was a weird -- it was right over your eyebrow. a really gross sort of -- >> jimmy: all right, josh. you got that one wrong. so you got zero points. now, here's the second question. was seth ever forced to play a sport he didn't want to? >> i still don't know why he ran track. so i'm going to say it was running track. [ laughter ] [ buzzer ] [ sad tuba ] ♪ >> no! >> jimmy: you tried you're hand in track? >> i ran track. >> jimmy: is that when you were taping your toes?

want to play? >> yeah, i played because you played. you said you were going to play, and do you remember why you quit pop warner? >> oh, yeah, because of the -- on the day we had to try -- [ laughter and applause ] >> they know. they know why. >> with the cup and the jock strap. no one gets you ready for that. that deserves some explanation.

(announcer) pristiq is a prescription medicine proven to treat depression.
pristiq is thought to work by affecting the levels of two chemicals in the brain, serotonin and norepinephrine. tell your doctor right away if your depression worsens or you have unusual changes in mood, behavior, or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase suicidal thoughts and behaviors in children, teens and young adults. pristiq is not approved for children under 18. do not take pristiq with maois. taking pristiq with nsaid pain relievers, aspirin or blood thinners may increase bleeding risk. tell your doctor about all your medications, including those for migraine, to avoid a potentially life-threatening condition. pristiq may cause or worsen high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or glaucoma. telling your doctor if you have heart disease... or before you reduce or stop taking pristiq. side effects may include nausea, dizziness and sweating.
