So the pandemic is surging again — it’s the perfect time to bring out the Director’s Cut version of the San Antonio Gridiron 2020: Socially Distant
It was a scream in November, showcasing the infamous, glamorous — and, yes, trashy, but we like to think hilarious — work of the cast and crew of Gridiron 2020
And we have more!
If you already saw it, go ahead and spring another $20 to watch it again. See your favorite parts and the new stuff, too. Because there are new skits in there sure to offend somebody, uncensored songs certain to raise eyebrows and no doubt cause a horrified Aunt Matilda to stare aghast and say, “Can they DO that?!?!”

It’s sad to see the novel coronavirus surging again, but take heart: The vaccine is ever closer. Everyone needs to keep using masks, keep that social distance and wash hands frequently.
And stay inside!
To help you with that, the Society of Professional Journalists – San Antonio chapter is doing its part to keep you all entertained. The would-be thespians of San Antonio Gridiron have come up with the idea and the SPJSA board (that relies on the funds they raise) has reluctantly approved — a Director’s Cut edition of Gridiron 2020: Socially Distant (que fancy).
There are new skits and newly uncensored songs sure to make you laugh and offend somebody, causing us once again to say: Damn the ‘rona! Full speed ahead!
For those of you who don’t know about this show, it’s our annual Saturday Night Live-style fundraiser for scholarships. It’s usually performed live on stage but this year, in a nod to current events, we went VIRTUAL via YouTube.
Tickets are cheap and the jokes are even cheaper. You’ll need just $20 of that coveted spare change to get an eyeful!
The Director’s Cut edition is set to premiere at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 18, on YouTube. We had a few technical difficulties the first time around in November, but the vast majority of our ticket holders were able to see the show and gave it rave reviews, if we do say so ourselves. And we learned how to work the site. Pretty much.
This time around, you will be buying access to the show through the weekend. Once the first showing plays through its entirety Friday night, you will be free to stop and start the show at will. You can rewind and fast forward to your heart’s content and see the show as often as you like, early in the morning, late at night, whenever — until access to the show closes at 11 p.m Sunday, Dec. 20.
Entertainer Extraordinaire Michael Quintanilla conjured some awesome performances from first responders and front-line health care workers and all kinds of officials — just wait till you see it! Director/Choreographer Francisco Saucedo Jr., Cinematographer Gary Cooper and Executive Producers Nora López and David Elizondo created a tour de force. Well, a tour de farce, anyway.
Join us! Buy a ticket and see the show again — or for the first time! You’ll have fun and the donation will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. And wouldn’t that be nice these days?
