Maybe the Football’s Possessed?
High school football is good for providing blog fodder, and this latest post is no exception. I must say however, this is the first time I’ve seen such English on a football during a pass in my life. The obvious explanation is the wind of Pennsylvania, but I’m also holding out for “ball on a string” or “alien interference” as well.
Maybe it was a Red Bull ball … Because, you know, it gives you wings. Crappy humor aside, that was some great defense by the visiting team’s secondary. The receiver must have been at least four or five steps behind the defense on what looks like an obvious passing play.
Apparently, the screwy flight of the ball gave the receiver just the distraction he needed to get open. Wide, wide open.
