Shoutout to my girl, The Timeout.
On Monday, during the 3rd period of a 3-2 game against the Atlanta Thrashers, Tampa Bay Lightning coach John Tortorella tried to call a timeout in between puck drops, but was denied access by a referee.
Moments later, the Thrashers scored the game-tying goal, and subsequently won the match in overtime.
Though Bironas did miss the initial kick, much to Shanahan’s delight, he succeeded on converting a 56-yarder on the second attempt.
This time, it was not to Shanahan’s delight.
Later in that same game came a play equally as interesting, because again, the Denver Broncos suffered the misfortune of a botched timeout call.
After that play ended, however, it was revealed that Broncos linebacker Nate Webster had in fact called a timeout on the previous play, which meant that Jeff Fisher could challenge Young’s questionable pilon-diving touchdown.
As a result, the Titans won the challenge and were again rewarded with points as benefit of a Broncos timeout-gone-wrong.
That’s why this week’s “get some!” award goes to my girl, The Timeout.
Because she deserves it.
