Changing the Play

The Elias Sports Bureau announced the other day that that crazy play in Sunday's Eagles-Redskins game, in which Reggie Brown caught a pass from Donovan McNabb, was hit, lost the ball, and then saw it caught by Corell Buckhalter for a touchdown, has been re-scored. It now counts as a touchdown pass for McNabb and a touchdown catch for Buckhalter (not for Brown.)

This is important because... of lots of people's fantasy teams. Anyone who had Brown last week loses a touchdown, and everyone who had Buckhalter (probably just about no one) gains one.

I was at the game, but unfortunately I was up getting beer and a hot dog and missed this amazing, Immaculate Reception-like play. The hot dog vendor was very excited, however. This continues the tradition I have of missing big moments, dating back to my bathroom break that caused me to not see Dan Gladden's grand slam in the 1987 World Series.

The additional 6 points means I now only lost last week by 10 points.
