Accidental and Insane and Just Perfect

Posted by: Tom Keene on February 7, 2012

Ahmad Bradshaw’s six-yard touchdown “run” was accidental and insane and just perfect. It was sort of the athletic equivalent of putting opposite magnets next to each other. It looked like he had just been tased.

Will Leitch, New York Magazine, 5 February 2012, 10:18 pm.

Everyone has a magnet in Europe. Everyone has a magnet per the not-so-great American Housing Crisis. Then, there is the magnet of years of competition that “drew” Mr. Bradshaw into the end zone.

(To review briefly, near the end of this super, Super Bowl, the team in white (Mr. Bradshaw’s team) did not want to score even though they could score. The team in blue wanted to let the team in white score even though their job was to not let them score. Bradshaw failed and scored and was in the time-out chair until the leader of Team Blue could not resurrect Saint Flutie. Confused? Consider Athens.)

I digress. Read up on the mystery that is Bradshawian magnetism. Get out your Gilbert Chem Set and some iron filings. Gaze at the Northern Lights. Are there Southern Lights?

Europe should kill for a very-American Super Bowl ending to their chronic crisis. All of Europe needs to be accidental and insane and just perfect. Discuss.
