A crowd was gathered around a burning building, with a woman leaning out a fourth-floor window. “Help! Help!” she cried. “Somebody save my baby!”
No one knew what to do, until out of the crowd leapt a man in shoulder pads. “I’m an All-American wide receiver!” he yelled. “Throw the kid down! I’ll catch him!”
“But what if you miss?” cried the baby’s mother.
“I’ve never missed a pass in a Hail Mary play!” yelled the receiver. “Throw the kid down!”
Left with no other choice, the baby’s mother held the baby over the receiver and let go. The baby twisted in the air and fell away from the receiver…but the player made a heroic leap and, landing face-first in the dirt, caught the baby to save its life!
The crowd burst into cheers, and the receiver stood up, grunted victoriously, spiked the baby, and drop-kicked it across the street.
