As you may be aware, last night hosted two NFL playoff games which determined the teams to play in this year's Superbowl. I am excited about the match up between the Colts and the Saints, should be a good game. At our house, football was on both TVs, just in case you had to go to the basement whilst the game was on and didn't want to miss anything. I like football, but the level to which The Husband enjoys the game rivals that of those guys who paint their faces yellow and wear cheese on their heads.
Last night I was informed of a very important rule in football (not sure if it is NFL specific). The Saints were going for a touchdown and seemingly crossed the goal line, but looked to be out of bounds. At first, the refs did not say touchdown. The Husband immediately said, "Bad call, that was a touchdown. His body was in bounds and crossed the goal line. It doesn't matter where the ball is and theoretically, everyone knows, that the goal line stretches all the way around the world, as long as he is in bounds, it doesn't matter where the ball is." After being reviewed, the play was ruled a touchdown.
So, be aware, a goal line could possible be be in your backyard, you better keep an eye on it.
One week in!
