  • SPORTS MOMENT: Attending the 1984 Illinois game in the Shoe with my Dad a couple of weeks before my 13th birthday. Keith Byars running for 274yds and 5tds, including the legendary 67yd td when he ran out of his shoe. His 3rd td where he dove for the left pylon in the closed end of the Shoe was right into our laps. The camera man was standing right in front of us, and this play was featured on the CBS lead in to college football for years. I've never seen 1 man take over a game like that, before or since. A great team with the likes of Mike Tomzack, Chris Carter, Mike Lanese, Peper Johnson, Jim Lachey, etc. That was the day I was baptized into the religion of CFB.

Nice write up Chris.

For the 2002 game I was returning from a week riding at Whistler with my ex, and caught some of the first half at the airport in Chicago, some of the 4th Quarter on the plane to Cleveland, and the field goal to tie in the baggage claim area on an old-timer's transistor radio.  Then the beginning of the OT on the mini tv at the taxi stand, and the final plays in the cab to my ex's parents place on a little tv the cabby had on his dash.  Not the most ideal, but certainly memorable.  My parents, who were in Tempe, rang the house line there almost immediately after the game finished, so we got to bask in the glow together which was cool.  I was living in Prague at the time and didn't see many games, but it still felt great to finally have one in my lifetime (71 born)

For this year's game, I woke up at 2 am (living in Germany) and watched in my bedroom with 3 different laptops giving me 3 different feeds (ok ESPN, that was SUPER COOL, especially the coaches room and the uninterrupted feed) while my wife and 2.5 year old daughter slept in the next bedroom.  I'm not the quietest guy watching games, and a few times took off the headphones I wore in the first half to to whisper yell "run the damn ball!  Give it to Zeke!"  Such a great feeling, even though I proceeded then after 4+ hours of viewing to walk to the shower and on to school to teach all day.  Sucks teaching on only a few hours of sleep, but man the euphoria from watching every game, every step of the way this year even though I'm so far away, was awesome.  These past years are the most games I've watched and been invested in since I graduated and left Columbus in 99, and it so feels like my fandom and dedication have been rewarded.  Can't say the same for the Browns.....

Personal aside:  did you run in to J. Cherkasly at those Hampton shows?

It was the ghost of Woody knocking that LB around that made him bobble that last "interception"

 

I too was screaming at the screen.  Now I'm sure I'm in the doghouse with my wife...oh well.

 

Also, you see who missed his block that led to the fumble/interception?  Wilson.  Typical.

 

Great 2 year run Bucks.  Disappointing end to both seasons.

i was also just a kid of 7, and remember clearly my mom and dad (season ticket holders since 66)  both saying Woody was done.

That damn game was my last until 1 in 2010 and 3 in 2012. Terrible feeling leaving the stadium.....
