It may go down as the finest catch of 2005. It happened last week in New York. A building superintendent actually caught an infant boy thrown out of a burning third-floor apartment in the Bronx. He called it a beautiful feeling to know he helped save the baby's life. Felix Vasquez made the grab after the child's mother threw the baby from the apartment last Wednesday. Firefighters rescued the mother, Tracinda Foxe, 30, from the smoke-filled apartment. Mother and baby were treated at a hospital and released.
Nice story. But, like many great catches, I’m not sure that Vasquez actually came down with the baby. I think, upon further review, the dude in the white toque may have been about to demonstrate control before Vazquez intervened. It’s a tough call but if I’m white toque guy, I might spend one of my replay challenges. It’s worth gambling the timeout. It’s your 15 minutes of fame, after all.

Now, THAT'S a hail mary pass.
Hey. Crazy idea. Go with me on this. Michael Jackson is looking for work. Maybe, given his history of dangling babies from balconies, the New York fire department can create a new job for him.
