Since the new season will be starting soon, here's a true story that goes back to the "Old National Football League." In those days the goal posts were on the goal line...
It was a game between the Chicago Bears and the New York Giants.. Chicago had the ball on the Giants 4 yard line.
Since this was before the days of the forward pass, the Chicago quarterback handed the ball off to Bronko Nagurski, the Bears premier fullback, and the "Bronk" hit the line--bounced off one tackler, then bounced off another tackler, slammed into the goal post, knocked himself out, but fell into the end zone for the touchdown.
When they revived him his first comment was,
"I sure made those first two guys miss me, but boy, that third guy really laid the wood to me."
