40 Years and 63 Yards Ago ...

Monday was the 40th anniversary of one of the most famous moments in National Football League history and in New Orleans Saints history.

Click here to read Monday's column from our old friend Peter Finney at The Times Picayune and see video of the kick.

A sidebar: Mr Finney, one of the most beautiful human beings ever and a wonderful columnist, was covering the game and left the pressbox during the final minute of the game to get down to the field and locker room to write up what appeared to be another Saints loss. He was in the Tulane Stadium elevator when Dempsey's kick cleared the crossbar.
