Sleepless in London, Seattle, Rangers and Sapp Lives Up To Name

FROZEN TUNDRA/FREEHOLD, NJ- Now that the confetti has been swept up, the Disney Parade has passed by and Warren Sapp has been arrested for solicitation, we can reflect on some of the worst plays in Super Bowl history.

It will be hard to top the Seahawks for taking the offense out of Beast Mode Gear, with a play call that certainly will rank número uno of the  worst calls ever,  however there have been many a bad play on this worldwide stage. My two most memorable involve Governor Chris Christie’s favorite team.

Neil  O’Donnell had an interception Hat Trick in Super Bowl XXX while sending the Cowboys Larry Brown to Disney World, throwing the DB not one but two passes to foil the Steelers bid for an upset.

The saddest of all mishaps has to go to two players. One was Bills Scott Norwood who will always drink for free when a Giants fan is in the bar.  His miss sealed the deal… for the opposition.

imageSecond sad sack goes to Jackie Smith who actually accomplished the unthinkable: He got Roger Staubach to swear after dropping an easy TD in the end zone versus the Steelers in Super Bowl XIII.

Enough of football for now. I look forward to compiling another top ten list of  NFL Players Behaving Badly in the very near future.

Let us move on to hockey and the Rangers of Manhattan.  After a few scoreless games, the Blueshirts  gave the Garden crowd a good ole dose of highs and lows.  After trailing by one, they roared back to lead by two. You all know what that meant. The dreaded two goal lead was blown and after two periods the Rangers and Panthers were knotted at three .  The third period was all Rangers as Boyle, Zuccarello and Nash (empty net) put the Floridians down 6-3 while  inching within three points of the first place Icelanders while having a game in hand. Rick Nash is now tied for the league lead in goals ( 31) with everyone’s favorite player Alex Ovechkin.  Plenty of time left to move up in the standings and prepare for the playoffs. With only 115 goals against (2nd in the East) and a plus 30 in goal differentiation, things are looking good……

WTF are they doing out there?

Finally, with the Cowboys watching the Super Bowl on TV, Chris Christie found his English Football groove rooting for Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal FC who defeated Aston Villa 5-0.  Rumor has it that the big guy has been invited back next week to bring positive energy to the North London side. Get ready to serve huge quantities of bangers and mash to keep him happy!

What’s your favorite Super Bowl moment?

Rest in peace to Dave Bergman former Detroit Tiger super utility player for the  1984 World Championship team , who lost his battle with cancer.
