Tynes Avoids Norwood-Buckner Club

3rd SE Quadrant\The Approval Matrix: Week of February 4, 2008

Lawrence Tynes missed a 36-yard field-goal attempt on the final play of regulation in the National Football Conference championship game against the Green Bay Packers that would have given the Giants a trip to the Super Bowl. Tynes got a second chance to win the game in overtime, which would have prevented him from joining the Norwood-Buckner Club of Reviled Chockers. Tynes’s made 47-yard field goal with 2 minutes 35 seconds into overtime, which gave the Giants the 23-20 victory over the Packers allowing them to play in Super Bowl XLII in Glendale, Ariz, against the undefeated New England Patriots on Feb. 3.

1986 World Series On October 25, 1986, the Boston Red Sox faced the New York Mets in game 6 of the World Series. Boston led the best-of-7 series 3 games to 2, and had a two-run lead with two outs in the bottom of the tenth inning. New York came back to tie the game with three straight singles off Calvin Schiraldi and a wild pitch by pitcher Bob Stanley. Mookie Wilson fouled off several pitches before hitting a ground ball to [Bill] Buckner at first base. The ball rolled under Buckner's glove, through his legs, and into right field, allowing Ray Knight to score the winning run, forcing a seventh game, which the Mets won. Buckner's error capped off a poor Game 6 performance; he went 0-for-5 with runners on in all five at-bats. (Wikipedia)
