RE: half time cash catch

I wasn't at the game so I didn't get to see the next Jerry Rice..
How did you get picked for the contest?
Who threw the ball to you?
A guy who lives just down the road from me was picked for the Dr. Pepper contest at the SEC Championship a couple of weeks ago, (Gators- A.Tigers), from just 5 yards out he had 10 tries to get the ball in this large 2x2 feet circle at $10,000 a ball, he then backed up another 5 yards for a shot at $700,000 being he got 7 out of 10 from 5 yards out, well he missed it but walked away with the $70,000, I read that he also said it was harder than what he thought it was going to be.
The fans in the Georgia Dome which was packed with Auburn and Florida fans were cheering for him, but in the end he said, "Go LSU Tigers", the cheers for him turned to boos.
Anyway, glad you got your 15 minutes of fame...

Rest In Peace JoeSam, thanks for everything my friend.

RE: half time cash catch

I saw you you catch like a girl, oops you are. you should have stood at the 30 yard line instead of moving up, the ball comes to those exact yard lines everytime.

Cash Catch

You should have stayed at each yard line......the 30, 50, and 30......we test the machine before every game to make sure it hits those yard lines consistently......

RE: Re: half time cash catch

You reminded everyone in my section of the old Saints who couldnt catch. Remember this for next time. FIRST STEP IS ALWAYS BACKWARDS. its easier to come up then it is to go back
Sorry, but your gloves didnt help anything either.
Soo.. how did you get picked??

I wouldn't do any better. I learned how to catch by watching the Saints over the years.

It is harder than it looks. I thought it was coming straight to me but it was over my head. Hard to judge. I only had one glove on and thats because I jammed my index finger catching f-balls on Saturday. I could only wear one and it was to profect my finger from further injury. It was as black as the uniforms and as swole up as T.O.'s head. I got picked by entering my name back in September. Never thought I'd get picked. Cool as hell to be on the field. Once in a lifetime opp! (So no next time)

WHO DAT!
