Nice video, dude!

Great Job!

But you should have mentioned the legend of the helicopter.
The legend of the helicopter claims that when the refs got together after that play and discussed whether or not it was a TD based on the legality of the catch (John Madden was screaming that Fuqua touched the ball first, making Franco's catch illegal), one of the refs asked his colleagues if any of them thought that a helicopter could be flown into the stadium to airlift them out if they ruled against the TD.

They all quickly agreed that a helicopter wasn't likely and so their ruling was: "Touchdown!"

And the rest, as they say, is history.

But even without that story, you did a great job on the video!
