I LOVE SPORTSBALL!
More pretenders eliminated this week. Fleck's Broncos keep rolling. Big win for the fighting Durkins.
So, if you'd asked me at 7pm, I would have said Darboh's catch in traffic, and the throw into traffic by Speight. Or the INT by Thomas. Or being incredibly focused in a should-win game the week before a must-win rivalry game. Probably the latter.
Mike Legg's Score-O goal from Friday (saw it today) is also a legit contestant this week.
A half hour ago, I would have said either Leonard Fournette (presently 254 yards on 12 carries through 3 quarters - 12 CARRIES) or the Cubs winning the pennant for the first time in 71 years (wasn't sure I'd ever see it happen and it deserves being the best thing).
But...there's a reason I didn't start typing this until zeros in Happy Valley. It needed to be the best thing I saw before I could say I saw it. Seeing a 20-point dog beat the #2 team was the best thing I saw.
As an added bonus, now we've seen how the Buckeye O can be slowed/stopped, we've seen how their D can be beat, and we've seen that special teams can be beat. And we have Harbaugh and staff to exploit it all even more in November. Until then, win and advance.
What you got?
