If you think that a majority of people in America have a decent grasp on the historical events that have gotten us to this point, well…I’m very sorry to have to disappoint you on that topic.

We all took those history classes in school, but if your education was anything like mine, a disturbing number of them were taught by coaches who couldn’t have cared less.

Now, I’m not saying sticking all of the male coaches who aren’t interested in teaching in the history department is having dire consequences, but I am saying these 15 comebacks wouldn’t have been necessary if we’d all learned a thing or two in class.
