The way these guys and gals were jumping, diving, and reaching to make plays you'd think we were on the runway at LaGuardia! That's right, no swoop was too low and no leap too high for some fabulous Monday night Football action. Just look at this guy from ShoeLace Face (Sapphire). Totally about to get liftoff. Let's start with a low (in terms of altitude, not achievement)!
Don't worry folks, no footballers were harmed in the making of these photos. Not harmed so much, but there may be a knee with a small scrape or two on it. Fret not, our resident mothers with damp clothes and wet kisses are there to mend any boo-boos that may result.
This guy from ShoeLace Face (Sapphire) didn't fall, he chose to lie down. No, seriously--we call it the catch and lie. He got hold of that ball and went down to secure the first down.
If that guy above was about to achieve liftoff, then this guy is well off the runway. It's perfect lift and perfect form for Flagging Rights (Maroon), which leads to a perfect catch.
In the world of international air travel, this guy from Whydaddydrinks (Light Blue) is the plane that only goes to Syracuse. But sometimes, dammit, that's where we need to go and who wants to drive the Thruway? Well it's just a little hop to catch this one and it's a golden play in my book.
And for a final high-flyin' show, these two guys shot up so fast the camera couldn't quite focus (ha ha, ha, right?). Just as CryWithMe Houdinis (Purple) drew up to make the play add points, Spread 'Em Deep Forever (Kelly) came jumping in with pigskin smack-down and screwed everything up.
And on a comical last note, two players from The Dream Team (Texas Orange) and Whydaddydrinks (Light Blue) opposing teams decided to try out for "Dancing Without The Stars", a new hit reality TV show on the OWN. From the looks of it, they're set to be number one. Congrats to you both.
