How does that old saying go, don’t work with kids or animals?
US Repbulican Presidential candidate Marco Rubio discovered that for himself in hilarious fashion at a state fair in Iowa yesterday when he decided to toss the pigskin around with some youngsters.
Miami product Rubio’s perfect spiral – which would have done Dolphins legend Dan Marino proud – was brought undone by his 4-foot high receiver, who overran the pass and took it on the scone before hitting the deck.
A perfect falcon.

Fortunately for Rubio, the young fella was OK – and they do say any publicity is good publicity.
