Welcome to 4 Things -- WBOB's Editor-in-Chief, Kevin Aherne's megaphone to offer his brief two-cents on topics ranging from sports to politics, from pop culture to nonsense.
Despite nobody asking, here it is anyway...
Most Iconic Play: John Elway Helicopter (Super Bowl XXXII - 1998)
Honorable Mention: Kicking Off a Dynasty (Super Bowl XXXVI - 2002)
Biggest Blunder: Leon Lett Almost Goes All the Way (Super Bowl XXVII - 1993)
Late in the fourth quarter, Cowboys' Offensive Lineman Leon Lett recovered a fumble on the Dallas 35-yard line and ran it back towards the end zone. When he reached the 10-yard line, Lett slowed and held the ball out as he approached the goal line. However, Lett did not see Bills player Don Beebe chasing him down from behind. Beebe knocked the ball out of Lett's outstretched hand just before he crossed the goal line, which sent the ball through the end zone, and resulted in a touchback that cost Lett his touchdown. Lett later said he was watching the Jumbotron, and trying to do a "Michael Irvin", where he put the ball out across the goal line.
Dallas rolled anyway, beating the Bills 52-17.
Honorable Mention: 2nd and Goal (Seattle - 2015)
