Re: What if Flynn makes the half court shot?

I have watched the MW Championship game several times over the last few months. It got me wondering... what if that shot from Flynn goes in to send the game to overtime? Do the Aggies still win it? Or does that shot give the Aztecs the momentum to put USU away in overtime? I think the Aggies still ...

The St. Louis Cardinals had a player named Fernando Tatis as their 3rd baseman. April 23, 1999 the Cardinals were at Dodger Stadium, and faci...
