Football is an exciting sport
Football is the most popular sport in the United States and is known for its astonishing athletic performance, shocking victories and heartbreaking defeats, but the barrier to entry to understand the game is among the likes of cricket and mechanical engineering.
The Daily Evergreen understands that WSU students want to absorb and enjoy football, so we offer a new weekly column detailed to make football more entertaining for those who may not understand as well as others.
This premier football breakdown is for drama lovers. Those who love to watch that character on Bachelor in Heaven despise what’s coming to them, viewers of The Real Housewives and those who can’t help themselves from hearing “tea” from their friends.
Since this is for fans of drama, we’ll start with one of the most exciting situations in football: the wide receiver.
The wide receivers (the men holding the ball from the quarterback) are like the Kardashians of soccer. they usually best dressedConstantly in the news (Through thick and thin) And sometimes we wonder Why are they famous? in the first place.
Some of football’s most iconic little moments come from future Terrell Owens, future NFL Hall of Fame a.k.a. TO
TO is known for its outrageous plays and brutal festivities. Throughout his 15-year career in the NFL, fans kept their eyes on their televisions to watch what he would do after touchdown.
Owens once He hid a pen in his socks To sign the ball and give it to the fan after landing, he stole a bucket of popcorn from a fan and threw it on his face and hold once boom boom cheerleader And they danced with them in the end zone.
However, the One TO celebration stands alone. This one is against the Dallas Cowboys.
To get an idea of how the Cowboys and their supporters view themselves, former Dallas quarterback Dee Dee Lewis once said, “The Texas field has a hole in its roof, so God can watch his favorite team play.”
On September 24, 2000, Owens scored a goal for the San Francisco 49ers against the Cowboys. Immediately after that, Owens sprinted to midfield, stood on the Dallas star crest and looked up through that hole in the ceiling to “Thank God.”
The move by Owens spurred an in-game game between the 49ers and the Cowboys.
After the next score, Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith made his way into midfield, planting the ball into the ground on the same star TO did earlier in the game.
“If you want it to be a fight, it’s a fight,” Owens said. “We’re at your house. You did it the first time. You did it. Well then stop me from doing it again.”
The Cowboys couldn’t stop TO, though. After his second touchdown, Owens returned to the midfield, planting the ball on the star-like star Smith. But this time, Cowboys George Teague flattened Owens for disrespecting the iconic Dallas logo.
While the TO celebration on the Dallas Star took place over 20 years ago, there is still plenty of trivial drama throughout the football world.
On September 9, 2017, Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield led soon-to-be No. 5 to 31-16 by upset over then No. 2 Ohio State.
After the Sooners’ victory, Mayfield snatched the OU flag from the cheerleading team, and ran into the midfield at Ohio State Stadium and Oklahoma flag transplant on the Buckeyes logo.
Two years later, Mayfield was the quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. On Monday Night Football, Mayfield and Browns acquired 49 players.
Defensive end 49er and former Ohio State Buckeyes Nick Bosa fought two blockers on his way to Mayfield. Bossa tackled Mayfield behind the line of scrimmage to get a sack and gave one of the most iconic moments in football history.
After the sack, Bossa ran into the field, waving a fake flag and plant it in the groundjust as Mayfield did with the Buckeyes two years ago.
Washington State fans may remember a similar moment from the 2021 Apple Cup: Former WSU quarterback Jayden DeLaura transplanted ‘Ol’ Crimson’ in Washington W After the victory of the Cogs 40-13 over the huskies.
If you’re looking for drama-filled football this weekend, the game for you is at 1:25 p.m. Sunday when the Buffalo Bills face the Kansas City Chiefs.
Matches between Bills and Chiefs have been a classic over the past few years. In the 2020 Asian Championship game, Kansas City beat Buffalo 38-24 and earned a trip to the Super Bowl.
The two teams met twice last season. In the first game, Bills won 38-20. But in the playoffs, The Chiefs won in overtime after the fourth quarter as the teams combined for a whopping 27 points.
It is safe to assume that the bills will seek revenge on Presidents Sunday. But, regardless of the outcome, this game between two of the best quarterbacks and offenses in the NFL had to have another dramatic end.
