Gambling 2K8: XXV (Praise Brian Vickers!)

If you want to know how lucky we were to get a Temple cover last night, take a look at what play-by-play extraordinaire Todd Harris said immediately after a Temple RB carried the ball down to the Ohio eleven yard line late in the 4th quarter, trailing 10-7:

"James Dixon on a pick up of nine...well it certainly gets 'em into field goal range..."

Into field goal range?

The play started at the 20 yard line, chip-shot territory for every kicker on the planet, or so I thought. Of course, the dickhead missed a 25-yard field goal a few plays later - validating Todd Harris in the process - and forced me to throw my New Balance sneakers across the room.

And yet, we won. Somehow. Lord Vickers = Will Hunting x John Nash + Jimmy the Greek.

Season Record: 36-28-1
