Where were you when Bug Howard made the catch?
I was a mere 10-minute walk away from Kenan Stadium, transfixed by the miniature television screen in my hollow living room. Yes, I could have endured four hours of heat to watch one of the greatest finish in UNC football history, but hindsight is always 20-20.
Instead, I nervously shoveled microwave rice into my face as North Carolina marched down the field for its final drive. I admittedly squealed like a pig on every fourth-down attempt (hey, I'm allowed to be a fan every once in a while), and I thought all was lost when Elijah Hood stumbled to the ground with the clock approaching zero.
But Howard had other plans. With a Pittsburgh defender draped all over him, he stuck his paw into the air and came down with one of the most incredible catches in recent memory. After the game, he said it's a play he will never forget.
