It's funny because absolutely nobody in the stadium initially saw him retrieve the ball and move away from the crowd. Then seemingly at once everyone finally sees him waving the ball with all the Skins players and fans pointing at him. I think the Skins player was #26(Copeland?). They definitely could've used instant replay...

I remember it like yesterday. Then the bottom fell out for the Boys late in the game. Being at that game, even before the Boys had won their first of 3 SBs, you could sense the team had already reached the rock-star status.
Yea, it was great being there. Even tho we lost everyone there knew who the better team was.
I was sitting at the other end of the field. Never even had a ticket. A friend from work knew somebody that would let him in the stadium and he got us both in. We moved around the stadium. He had friends all over the stadium so we just moved around.
