What it's like to score a Super Bowl touchdown
Joyce Park stashed this in The Sporting Life
I cannot resist.
Which of the six stories is your favorite?
Catching a Super Bowl touchdown is one of the most joyous things a person can do on Earth. Any player will say that winning a championship is even better, of course, but again that's a different sort of joy. That's a wholesome satisfaction, whereas scoring is a single, brief, selfish rush to appreciate everything one man has accomplished. Though players only hint at it, there's no denying that they enjoy the spotlight.
SB Nation spoke with six former NFL players -- Broncos wide receiver Rod Smith, Ravens wide receiver Brandon Stokley, Panthers wide receiver Muhsin Muhammad, Packers safety Nick Collins, Falcons kick returner Tim Dwight and Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce -- and asked them to recall as much as they could about the moment they scored in the Super Bowl. Below are their edited recollections.
Always the defensive guy :)
Those defensive guys do tell good stories.
