Lunch Break

November 21, 2009

From earlier this season: Brett Favre led an 80 yard drive in 90 seconds with no timeouts ending with a TD pass to Greg Lewis for the win.

    At the risk of getting savaged by respondents to this post, I write with some trepidation:

    There is only one thing wrong with this video sequence, and that is that the NFL “goes upstairs” to check the video to declare this a touchdown. Sport is about playing the game and not about video replays. I never liked referees and umpires being second guessed by videographers and I never will. Sport is an amalgam of ability/talent, training/practice, conditioning, error, and luck, video replayed judgments are an attempt to eliminate error and luck under the misguided assumption that the elimination of error and luck will enhance the other elements of sport. True sportsmanship is the acceptance by all involved in the game, participants and fans, of the tenuous relationship between ability, performance, judgement, and luck. Sport is a human activity that has little to gain from technology, so I say bring back true sportsmanship by kicking out the videographers that we might all agree that a true champion is sportsman first, last, and always.

    Did he hold a press conference right after this, announce his retirement and bawl his eyes out?

    Favre does weep a lot, but man, is he a great competitor or what?

    We should all do so well in our dotage.

    Plus think about the Vikes beating Singletary when he used to do so much damage to them as a player!

    Does anyone remember Joe Kapp?

    I don’t even care about football, but this was fun to watch–especially Lewis’s little dance/skip/run.
