A good example being The Immaculate Reception. The play took place in the 1972 AFC Championship game in Pittsburgh. QB Terry Bradshaw threw to the receiver -- who took a hit and dropped the ball -- RB Franco Harris picked the ball up before it touched the ground and ran in the TD.
Usually in this situation, the ball would have gone to the ground and the play is ruled an incomplete pass. What chance of pulling the play off again? Next to none.
This has become one of the most talked about plays in NFL history and to this day remains controversial, the result was the Stelers won 13 - 7. The Steelers lost in the final to Miami the following week, but went on to become the top team of the 1970's, winning Superbowl four times.
The play also heralded a vicious rivalry between the teams and the most brutal period in the history of The Silver and Blacks, as the Oakland Raiders made vicious their calling card.
This month was my fluke on Amazon, why?
It is the first month with 10 sales in the three years I have been there. I came close twice before, but even with 7 in a mid-month weekend I didn't get the extras. You might conjecture this is the start of a new era -- I will remind you -- this is the usual amount of sales for two years on Amazon for me.
Do I think it will be repeated? No.
It is my opinion the only people who do well on Amazon are those who are well-known and can afford mass publicity.
