From the Bowels of YouTube: We Miss Football


If you’re like me, you’ve certainly experienced a “YouTube loop” – that is to say, a time when you find yourself on YouTube for much longer than you’d planned, having clicked on video after video, and wondering, “How did I get here?”. This is our weekly segment where we share some of our favorite sports highlights that you may not have seen (or haven’t in a very long time). Feel free to share your favorites in the comments or tweet us and we’ll consider them for next week. Check back every week for the latest edition.

It’s March already, and Spring is on the way. College basketball is in full swing, opening day is right around the corner, and although we’re in the midst of free agency and the draft is coming up, we’re still almost six months away from meaningful football action. We miss it, and have decided to make our beloved football the subject of this week’s FTBOYT post. These two clips will remind you why we love football:

2007 Fiesta Bowl

Alex: I’m sure most of you have seen the highlights of this game between Boise State and Oklahoma. In case you live in a cave and haven’t, I won’t spoil the outcome. This is one of the best games I’ve ever seen. At school the next day, a friend who had turned the game off would not believe me when I told him what had happened. I come across this every once in a while, and it always gives me chills.

“I Wanna Throw Up”

Pat: This is honestly the craziest three plus minutes of football I have ever seen.  I don’t want to ruin the video for people, so check it out and post in the comments your thoughts on how you would feel if you were a member of either team.
