Weekend Open Thread: Heartbreak Edition
Today is the 10th anniversary of the forward lateral that changed history. The once-great Buffalo Bills, and their still astoundingly loyal and rabid fan base (who were just a few months removed from the infamous “No Goal” incident), have never fully recovered. Indeed, the Bills ended the next decade as arguably the single-worst franchise in that period – not once making the playoffs – after spending the ’90s as one of the very best franchises of that period. Of course, the man who made the asinine play call of a pop-fly kickoff which allowed Frank Wychek to throw the Forward Pass of Infamy managed to do just fine, spending the last few years as the head coach of America’s so-called team. Mr. Phillips, I spit in your general di-rection.
