Famous sports OPE
Original Message   Jan 16, 2005 6:50 pm
It always seems to snow when the playoffs are at New England. Anyone remember the guy riding out on to the field with the tractor that had the snow broom on it. He cleared off a spot for the N.E kicker to spot the ball and created some controversy. What team were the Pats playing? Another famous moment in sports.

No, It wasn't the tuck game. This was quite a few years before that. The tuck game was a heck of a snow storm though.

I was on the fence with this one termy. I thought it would go here. If it does not, I'll let one of the Mods let me know.

I remember watching that game and for life of me can't remember the team they played, I want to say the Raiders? I remember seeing the garden tractor come out onto the field with either a plow or a big brush roller and clear a spot where the kickers path was to take his steps and kick. The officials said there was nothing in the rule book about it and let it continue.

What was the Equipment used and who did they play Kevin? Let us know. We talked about this on WTB years ago and I've seen replays of it too, matter of fact on replay was today but I wasn't paying detailed attention.

If it wasn't the Raiders, it must have been the Bills.. But No.

Or the Patriots' 3-0 "Snow Plow Game" victory over Miami on Dec. 12, 1982. With neither team able to score during a raging snowstorm, tractor driver Mark Henderson -- a convicted burglar on a work-release program -- alertly cleared a path with his snow brush for John Smith's 33-yard field goal late in the fourth quarter.
Not surprisingly, the NFL quickly banned grounds crews from doing anything to create a physical advantage, but two heroes were born. The Patriots still use that John Deere tractor, and Henderson received a loud ovation when he drove it onto the field during a 2001 reenactment.

Marshall, Just like you described, but it was a brush roller. I can't remember the team they played, but I remember my father made money on it. He liked the tractor guy. LOL

Robmints, I believe you are right on the guy being on work release. I wonder if he had money on it.

I sure hope they have that Lingere Bowl again.

Way better than the Bud Bowl.
