185. The floodlights give out

The floodlights give out and Bubba is stranded in the dark, just as he crosses the ten yard line, his big moment blown, it seems.

But then a dim glow emerges, followed by another, and a third.

In seconds, thousands of lights from all corners of the stadium illuminate the field and bathe the end zone in blue.

Bubba keeps on running.

It’s a touchdown.

It’s a triumph.

It’s a smartphone miracle.
