Courtesy of Reddit’s “Today I Learned” group:
Today I learned: Max McGee, the first player to score a touchdown in a Super Bowl, did so hungover and getting barely any sleep the night before. He was a backup who didn’t expect to play, and when the starting receiver got injured, he had to grab a lineman’s helmet because he didn’t have his on hand. Also, that first touchdown was a one-handed grab, and he went on to have two touchdowns that game for 138 yards.
Happy new year, everyone!
