All the Brady shirts that kids are wearing reminded me of the equivalent from when I was a kid, the Flutie shirt.

I was in sixth grade and watching the game with a friend in my basement when this happened:

Biggest moment in Boston sports history until Malcolm Butler.

I was in my living room.  I was raised to hate BC, but you'd have to be devoid of a pulse to have not gotten caught up in that moment (and really Flutie's entire career).

In my living room, drinking beers with a friend. I wasn't a giant BC fan but was a huge Flutie fan. One of the more exciting sports moments of my life, right up there with Carlton Fisk's homer in 1975, Vinatieri's kick in SB XXXVI, games 4,5 and 6, of the ALCS vs the Yankees, Butler's interception, and the entire 4th quarter and OT of this years SB.
