With about 10 minutes left in the fourth we were facing a fourth down at your 32 yard line. Instead of trying for the field goal we punted, normally I think most would try a field goal but we punted. The thinking being that a missed kick would give the ball to the opponent at the 39 but by punting the worst case is they start at their own 20. I prefer to make the opponent gain that extra 19 (or more) yards.
At the time the play happened I was thinking it was a miscall that could have made it a one score game. In the end it didn't matter.

Ah, ok, I see. Now that you explain it I remember wondering why you didn't go for the kick

I just published a PM about the SEA LIONS' season, leading in with this:

When toe hit ball in the 4th Quarter of the Superbowl, with mere 11 seconds to go in the game, the whole stadium was silent, albeit in awe. The Kicker of the Alaskan Fur Trappers had just kicked a 46 yard field goal to tie the game 23:23, but it was a boneheaded play by the HAMBURG SEA LIONS prior that had made the whole stadium go into a state of disbelief, for fans of both sides.

I love to let imagination run wild how it would have been to see this play out for real

The stadium would have lost their minds on both sides.
