Okay, so this game was INSANE. Obviously this blog is for people who aren’t sports fans or just the losers that missed the end of that game. Let me set the stage:
The Vikings had a 17 point lead (which is huge).
The Vikings then go on to blow this lead and are down 23-24 with :14 left in the game.
Then this happened:
What a god awful tackle.
I feel terrible for Marcus Williams. I love moments like this in sports but I can’t help to feel for the guys who blow their chance and will now be the scapegoat the rest of their lives. Bartman. Norwood. Merkle. And now Marcus Williams.
The other side of moments like this is the fan reaction. The greatest sporting event moment I was ever apart of was the 2015 NLCS when Kyle Schwarber hit a game-tying home run in the 1st Inning of Game 3. Yeah, I know, it seems early, but when that ball landed, the entire crowd of 41,268 stood in unison and screamed their face off. I have goosebumps just typing it. The point is: I love a cool crowd reaction. Fans showing raw emotion gives me tears in my eyes, and if this doesn’t give you goosebumps then you do not have a pulse.
That may be the coolest thing I have ever seen. An amazing chant in PERFECT unison led by the guy who just threw the game-winning TD just minutes earlier. If you saw this at the end of a movie, people would roll their eyes in the theaters.
Incredible. Sports are amazing.
