I was but one of the multitude with eyes glued on the final second of play in the Iron Bowl at Jordan-Hare Stadium last night. That alone is a miracle, as I had just turned to that channel to watch another program which was supposed to soon air.
One second remained on the clock. Alabama had made other failed attempts at a 57 foot field goal in an effort to break the 28-28 tie with Auburn. Again the attempt by Adam Griffith failed, but this time Coach Gesmatzahn had instructed Chris Davis to be poised to intercept the ball–a move so unexpected that it worked like a charm. Davis bolted around and through Alabama’s stunned tackles to complete a 109 foot touchdown, winning the game and clinching their shot at the SEC championship! Wow, what a play!
Even if your not an Auburn fan or are even not a normal sports enthusiast, one has to admire this remarkable accomplishment.
Moral of the story: Never give up, even in the face of what seems insurmountable odds.
