I swear the announcers said something like that after calling the amazing play at the end of the Trinity versus Millsap game. Who are these teams you say? Not many people knew before this it's all over the TV shows and Internet. This is how KARE in St Paul describes it:

"The game's final play started simply enough, with Trinity quarterback Blake Barmore dumping a short pass over the middle to wide receiver Shawn Thompson.

It ended with Trinity's Riley Curry dashing 44 yards into the end zone for the winning touchdown with no time left on the clock.

In between the touches by Thompson and Curry, it was 46 seconds of pure craziness.

Seven different Tigers touched the ball. There were 15 laterals. Think Cal-Stanford 1982 without the band running onto the field."

You've got to see it, or hear it to believe it. The play-by-play guy goes nuts at the end. The color guy screams. We played it several times in the newsroom this morning, then Executive Producer Adam thought, why not play it on our air? So at 6:40 and 8:40 AM we aired it, and Grant and Amanda were hilarious too in talking about it.

I wonder if the fans were as excited as I was at last year's BYU-Utah game when we had our own "caught for the touchdown! Caught for the touchdown!" from Greg Wrubell. I jumped up and down and screamed and yelled and almost fell out of the stands at Rice-Eccles. This Trinity game-ender was a "go crazy folks, go crazy" kind of play. That quote by the way is from the St Louis Cardinals' longtime announcer (now deceased) Jack Buck. Anyway, google it, you'll love it.
