Quite Possibly The Greatest. Catch. Ever.

Thursday, September 25, 2008

This obviously has nothing to do with announcing, but this is one of those must see videos that usually finds it way onto this site. Morgan State wide receiver Edwin Baptiste pulled of perhaps the greatest catch in the history of Football this past Saturday against Winston-Salem. You have to sit through a WGHP reporter's ramblings, but it's worth it.



Good lord....that was amazing. I really could watch that all day long.

This catch is not better than David Tyree's.

Yeah agreed. It's a great catch. But not the best ever.

Well of course the Tyree catch was in a more important situation and thus overall better. But the catch on its own could be the best.

Tyrone Prothro's catch a couple of years ago for Alabama is still the best catch I've ever seen.

Not sure if I would call it the greatest catch ever, but that was one helluva catch.

Forget the cath. Danny Herndon's T-shirt under the blazer is far more eye-catching. He's like a latter-day Crockett. Or Tubbs. Or something.

without a doubt this is a great catch, but Prothro's is the best ever no doubt in my mind.

That's tough....Prothro's was awesome but it didn't take near the amount of athleticism.

Let's see David Blaine do that.

How come ESPN hasn't shown this catch?

It probably was on other ESPN shows around 6-7, but when I turned on ESPNews at the end of the 7 o'clock hour:

Steve Bunin: "That is the catch of the year. It'll probably win an ESPY, and remember, you saw it here first."

Yeah if Tebow would have made that catch, it would have been covered a thousand times on the leader
