Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker booted a 27-yard field goal as time expired Sunday to beat the New England Patriots, 31-30.
The ball sailed over the right upright, leaving viewers to wonder if the kick was actually good — except for Ravens fans (it was totally good!) and Patriots fans (these replacement refs are horrible!).
One man has been preaching the solution to this problem for years, and I now consider myself a follower of his sermon.
Adam Carolla, radio host and founder of Carolla Digital, has suggested extending the uprights at least a half dozen times since I started tuning in regularly a couple of years back.
He now has exhibit A — or B, C, or D ... who knows?
With Simmons’ beloved Patriots getting the short end of the stick last night, I wonder how the same conversation with the Sports Guy — real or fake — might sound like this morning.
