That was interesting, even though I don't gamble beyond the occasional lottery quick-pick when it hits 9 figures. Thanks.
75-1 on something that happened 3 different times in 18 weeks during the regular season/playoffs?
The "Ditka didn't give Walter Payton a chance to score a touchdown in the Super Bowl" thing is a myth. Sure, Perry got the one carry at the 1 (and was sacked from the 5 earlier in the game), but Payton carried the ball on:
2&2 from the 5 (1Q): gained 1
1&goal from the 3 (1Q): lost 2
1&goal from the 4 (2Q): gained 2
1&goal from the 5 (4Q, up 44-10): gained 1
2&goal from the 4 (4Q, up 44-10): gained 1
It's not Ditka's fault that the only thing the Patriots could do well that day was stop Payton.
Dr. Backshoulder's low catch rate: an aberration, or a long-term problem?
