    If he can hang on after getting demolished, why can't Shiancoe hold onto it after getting hit only fairly hard?

    My guess would be that Sammy White was a good receiver and Shank is... :-X

    When I saw that play happen I thought it was the ball that popped out and not his helmet...it was one of those days for the Vikings.

    I hate when they use the term "anniversary" for bad things. It just doesn't seem to fit.

    now, i'm just a young guy, who still has lots to learn about vikings history.
    What significance was there of that hit?
    Was he seriously injured?

    It was one of a very few positive plays that the Vikings had in the game...I don't recall if he was knocked out of the game though...probably got a concussion, but back then they didn't think concussions were a big thing...just rub some dirt on it and get back in the game
    ;D

    I did too...I actually saw all 4 of our Super Bowl losses(yes I'm old)...The Vikings didn't play well in any of them. :'(
    But there is always hope....hope that I live long enough
    to see them win.

    I remember watching it too, and was amazed that Sammy held onto it. I never liked Tatum, always thought he was a dirty player, taking too many shots helmet-to-helmet. They call him "assassin".

    As I recall, there was nothing out of the ordinary with the hit on Stingley, except of course the result...and I believe it was a preseason game (thus the anniversary). Also, Tatum never apologized to Stingley.

    Tatum is a certifiable asshole regarding that play.
    I never followed up on it to see if he ever did apologize.
    I remember that he didn't at the time and he didn't when he was in the hospital.

    I remember those SBs like they were yesterday.
    I think it hardened me up so I could live through the pain of being a fan.
    I'm pretty sure Sammy came back into the game and played, I think his TD was after getting creamed by Tatum.
