Saturday was the single greatest sports day of my life. My football team is the Wheaton College Thunder, and we are currently the number 4 team in the country. This Saturday was our first game. Much in Michigan fashion, we got the ball down three with about 2 minutes left. Much like Michigan, our defense HAD to force a quick punt or the game was over. They did this. So, in typical Tate fashion, our quarterback marched us down to their 5 yard line with ten seconds left. Down three, clock is ticking, one shot to win...you can see what happened below (I'm #71)
It is known simply as "The Catch." Now, I realize this may not be very exciting for impartial observers, but this, coupled with the late Michigan win that I was able to rush home and catch, made Saturday the greatest sports day of my life.
The only bad thing of the day: When Matthews caught that pass, I jumped up to celebrate, and both my calves subsequently cramped up. Nothing was wiping that smile off my face though
