Out with the new; in with the old...

YaaaoooooooO!

New England Patriots second sting quarterback Doug Flutie converted the NFL's first drop kick in 64 years... (it even made ABC's world news) It made the game worth watching even though they lost. And if I may speak further, I shall add that the Patriots may have lost intentionally to avoid playing the Pittsburg pull-pushers in the first round of the playoffs... If Doug Flutie had missed the extremely risky drop kick/extra point, the Patriots would have had zip chance of winning or tying it up. To borrow a Dan Ratherism, they would have been worse off then a monkey in a flowing lava pit full of lice. It was a terrific call nevertheless...


Happy New Year everyone!

Flutie is an "old" guy. that is my guess for the title anyway.

but it is football, so who really cares? :)

Drop kicks used to be done all the time but eventually place kicks became the standard. The other amazing thing is that Flutie is a back-up quarter-back not a kicker.
