Listen to Jenn from Wye Oak's 10-minute joke (?) song about football

As part of her main band Wye Oak, singer-guitarist Jenn Wasner writes complex, often dark compositions about love, life, and distress. With a couple of friends, she has just released a 10-minute instructional song about football. It's not exactly a celebration or condemnation of the game, but rather a straight-up reading of the game's complex rules. If you've ever wanted to hear Wasner saying things like "False start moves the offense back five yards," atop Pat Benatar-esque rockings, this is surely the song for you. Do you exist?
