TAKING A BATHROOM BREAK — What a weekend, right?
If you are a sports fan in America in 2017, this weekend was a pretty good one —snow games in college football (which Army won 14-13), pro football (which Buffalo won 13-7), and a slew of basketball highlights in warm, cozy gyms across the country.
The gift-giving started early when Cosmo the Cougar and Puddles the Duck hooked up for an epic dance off at ESPN’s college football awards show last Thursday. But there was plenty more through the weekend.
Here are our favorite moments. As always, click the video above for the best of the Great Clips of the Week — including the official KSL Sports Utah bowl game hype video.
Senglin with authority
Remember Jeremy Senglin, the Big Sky’s all-time leading 3-point shooter who graduated from Weber State a year ago?
He’s still playing basketball, and doing more than just hitting buckets from the perimeter with the Long Island Nets in the NBA G League.
Here’s Senglin throwing down a dunk during the Nets’ 111-94 loss to Rio Grande Valley last week.
Vinatieri the G.O.A.T
Adam Vinatieri is putting himself in the conversation for great kicker in NFL history.
But on Sunday, he took the conversation to a new level, in a snowstorm in upstate New York.
Vinatieri’s 43-yard point-after touchdown, (yes, a PAT, thanks to a penalty flag,) was originally pushed right, but squeezed left mid-flight to connect against the Bills.
The Colts lost in the insanity of the snow game, however, when LeSean McCoy gave Buffalo the 13-7 win.
It was bound to happen
The greatest streak in the history of the NFL is over.
No, we aren’t talking about a winning streak, or even the Browns’ winless streak in 2017, (Cleveland moved to 0-13 after an agonizing 27-21 overtime loss to Green Bay).
One of the sports finest media personalities, NFL RedZone host Scott Hanson, finally had to take a bathroom break in the middle of an NFL Sunday. For four-straight years, Hanson has brought non-stop, commercial-free football to viewers without leaving his desk through the afternoon every Sunday.
That streak is over, and Hanson confirmed the result — as any good media personality does in 2017 — on Twitter.
Hanson has had the job with NFL RedZone since 2009, so this isn’t his first bathroom break in job history.
But the streak is still impressive, and we’ll pour one out for you, sir.
