Nothing Here About Sandy

So what’s there to talk about today?

How about the Giants sweep of the Tigers as San Francisco wins their second World Series championship in three years.  Proof once again that a “team” is better than a collection of high-priced individuals.  By the way raise your hand if you watched more than 10 minutes of the series.  I didn’t think so.

Announcers often overuse the expression “game of inches” but that was not the case in the final moments of Sunday’s Giants-Cowboys game.  Dallas appeared to have scored a game-winning touchdown with 6 seconds left on a long pass from Tony Romo to Dez Bryant.  But TV replays showed Bryant’s fingers landed just on the white line in the back of the end zone and the TD was overturned and Giant fans breathed a collective sigh of relief.  “Big Blue” wins 29-24 and takes control of the NFC East.

Of course it might be worth mentioning that Rutgers’ dream of a perfect season ended on Homecoming Saturday with a loss to Kent State as Gary Nova threw six interceptions.  Rutgers can still win the Big East and get themselves a nice bowl game so all is not lost.

How about Toms River North winning their first Shore Conference Girls Soccer Tournament after knocking off previously undefeated Freehold?

Then there is what I witnessed and broadcast Friday night…the most bizarre ending to a high school football game I have ever seen.  Brick was moments away from securing their second straight stunning upset, this time over previously undefeated Lacey.

The Lions trailed 3-0 and had the ball at their own 42 yard line with time for one final play.  Quarterback Connor Davis completed a pass to Bill Belford in the middle of the field at about the Green Dragons 30 yard line.  Belford was supposed to pitch it to a teammate but knowing that wouldn’t work raced to the sideline, turned upfield and dove into the end zone with no time left on the clock.

As Brick players and coaches dropped to their knees the entire Lacey team celebrated in the end zone as the dramatic victory gave them a division title.

Well you know what they say…when there is nothing to talk about, talk about the weather.   So how about the weather… oh well time’s up.
