The funny thing about Married...With Children
Al Bundy repeatedly said he once scored 4 touchdowns in one game. He didn't dominate or win a district championship or state title. He said he did it in one game, the highlight of his life.

It's even funnier when you think about it a little deeper.

Actually the game he scored the 4 TDs in was for the "city championship". Also, he also held the record for most TDs at Polk High in a season, we learned that in the episode where Kelly becomes a cheerleader. Kelly, trying to garner the affection of a disinterested player, runs onto the field and tackles the guy short of the goal line as he is about to break Al's season record.

Bottom line, there's not a lot to read into here. For Al Bundy, his glory days ended with high school ball. To him, his life as a shoe salesman (married with children) is a disappointment.

I found the show very mildly amusing back in the day but never got into it and maybe watched a grand total of 5 episodes.

They could call it "Married with Great-Grandchildren".

That's a thing. Fan sites are pushing for it. Would love to see it.

I loved Married with Children. It was one of my favorite shows. And you are correct. The 4 TDs occurred in the city championship. By all suggestions from other episodes, Al enjoyed overall success on the high school football field. After high school was a different story.

On a related note... I believe I still have the distinction of being the only player in the history of my school to receive a 15 yard unnecessary roughness penalty for hitting another player on my team.

I personally liked him going down in Little Giants, granted that wasn't Al Bundy.
