This post is really just an excuse to see if we can lock down the true definition of a Hail Mary. I am not sure a 33-yard toss to a man facing single coverage as time expires qualifies. But perhaps my definition of a Hail Mary is too rigid and old-school.
By any name, this improbable play helped Lakeridge (Ore.) defeat rival Lake Oswego for the first time in 10 years. Some really depressing 28-year-old townies probably got depressingly drunk to celebrate the end of the streak.
It could be worse for them, though. They could be debating the true meaning of Hail Mary.
