    I guess I was wrong when I called this underrated, a lot of love for this track on here! One of their best, no question. WOODWIND.

    i love the combination of timeless music and ephemeral play-by-play commentary.

    The Madden/Summerall version explains where the title came from. :-) I'm partial to the horns on the CODY version, and the enhanced drum sound and better recording overall. That one, incidentally, I think may sample a high-school game; one of the teams is identified as "Aquinas," and I don't think there's a college by that name with a football team.

    Yep, that'd be it. Thanks for the link, too, I didn't have it, myself!

    I was intrigued by everyone talking about an "original version." Is this what you guys are referring to? http://newartillery.com/em/Mogwai-Helps_Both_Ways_(Original).mp3

    One more vote for the John Madden version, which is sublime.

    An 89 yard return...doesn't narrow it down too much. I wish I knew what game this is from

    When I listen to this, I understand why Mogwai don't bother with lyrics. The music says what cannot be expressed with words. And this song is a great example of that. How it makes me feel, I really cannot describe verbally.

    I'm watching the NFC championship game right now with this in my headphones. Works pretty well.
