I came across a couple of very interesting articles on Super Bowl XLII heroes David Tyree and Justin Tuck yesterday.
First Tyree. His amazing over the shoulder against the helmet catch on the game-winning drive hasn't got a fancy name like Dwight Clark's 1981 'Catch.' But, if you ask Clark, that doesn't make it any less spectacular.
Clark also knows that Tyree's catch has changed his life forever, just as the 1981 catch of a Joe Montana pass changed his.
I'm sure Tyree won't mind living with the attention.
As for Tuck, a blurb in ESPN's 'Hashmarks' blog details how close Tuck came to never even being recruited by Notre Dame, much less making it to the NFL.
Amazing how things work out sometimes. The Giants and their fans say 'thanks' to that gas station attendant.
