A Blunt Take on Sports

“Little Giants” highlight the football weekend

So this weekend produced some of the most exciting football games in a while. Granted, it was only week 2 in the NFL & week 3 in college football, but there were about 7 or 8 games this weekend that were not decided until the closing minutes of the game or in overtime.

 While the Clemson-Auburn may have been the best-played game of the weekend, the finish of the weekend occurred in the Notre Dame-Michigan State game. In case you missed it because you were lame or otherwise in-disposed of, the game went into overtime and the Golden Domers took a 3-point lead on a field goal. Needing a tie to send it into a second overtime, the Spartans lined up for a field goal attempt in excess of over 40 yards.  At the snap, the Spartans ran a fake field goal play, called “Little Giants”, which was executed to perfection and resulted in a touchdown!  Game over! One of the gutsiest calls ever made in a game. (see video link below)

This is what football is all about. Hey NFL, are you paying attention?

  1. Fantastic finish. ND falls to 1-2. Brian Kelly has a losing record? I am stunned. That guy has an impecable track record. And MSU seems to be on their way to 8 wins.
