Worst Football Play In History (Revisited)
Posted on 09.01.10 by Danny Glover @ 11:04 pm

A year ago come Oct. 1, I uploaded to YouTube a 31-second news clip titled “Worst Football Play In History” and embedded it on this blog along with two other amazing football videos.

The clip I posted was modestly popular at the time but by no means a viral hit. The last time I looked at the stats a few months ago, the clip had been viewed more than 10,000. But it hit the viral big time last weekend when Prep Rally, a Yahoo sports blog, embedded the clip in a story about the latest gridiron embarrassment.

Comparing the clip I posted last fall with the new one, the blog concluded: “Amidst all the horrendous bloopers of past years, that Vermont finish seemed like the worst play ever … until today. Even champions have to retire some time, and the Vermont clip will always know it went out to, truly, the worst play in high school football history.”

I’ll let you decide the winner after watching both videos below (mine is the first one), but all I care about at the moment is that I’m now the proud digital papa of my first viral video. Thanks to Yahoo, the clip has been viewed nearly 725,000 times.

That’s not going to break any YouTube records — the fresher clip currently has more than 1.7 million views — but it’s still cool.
