Did you know...
... that today is Kick a Football Day? In a 1951 "Peanuts"
comic strip, Charlie Brown first attempts to kick a football.
The first appearance of the gag is in the strip from November
14, 1951. In that strip Violet, not Lucy, is the one holding the ball and she only pulls it away because she is afraid Charlie Brown will kick her hand. Lucy was first shown playing the prank on Charlie Brown on November 16, 1952. Help him out today by going out and kicking a football! ;-)
