Two American Anthems
John Shaw’s This Land That I Love begins in 1940, with a shot of Woody Guthrie trudging and hitching his way through a snowstorm, New York–bound from Pittsburgh. All along Guthrie’s route, Shaw writes, “jukeboxes and radios had blared ‘God Bless America,’ a hit for network radio star Kate Smith,” and that recording’s bludgeoning self-confident tone, reinforced by “a stirring march rhythm,” was really starting to piss Guthrie off.
"I was clueless"
"I was clueless," Prater said. "I didn't know he was going to call for the field goal. I didn't know the kick would be from where it was. I think it helped me to get out there late. Because I had to rush out there, I didn't have much time to think about it."And the Broncos won 28-51.
When Prater saw Colquitt put his hand down on the Broncos' 46 yard line, that's when he knew. All kickers know the NFL record field goal was 63 yards. All kickers know their 46-yard line is the magic mark for the record — 54 yards to the far goal line, another 10 yards through the end zone and over the goal posts.
