How is a catch like this *possible*?

How could David Tyree pin the football to his dome in the Superbowl?

Granted, I only watched a few minutes of the damn game. I had better things to do. I can’t ever remember the damn game the year before, so I might as well skip what I’m going to forget more quickly than a stoner does with a pizza in the oven.

But I did manage to see what will surely be hailed as one of the greatest catches in the game, one that brought down the Patriots and ruined their “perfect season.” Waaaah.

I really think that helmet should be tested for sticky substances. Maybe Tyree rubbed some ol’ pine tar on the dome? Maybe some nacho cheese? HMMMMMM? I demand an investigation, damnit

Notice the convenient location of the sticky nacho cheese on Tyree’s helmet, which is pictured above.

All in all I don’t have any business blogging about pro football, since I don’t really follow it. Then again, I’m not really sure that I have any business babbling about anything but possible scenarios involving meth-fueled satanic Teletubbies that go on a shotgun spree in a VW bus while listening to Sepultura.
