in this photo, one can clearly see the almost 5 ft gap b/w the ball & the blundering dallas defensive back everson walls. what u can’t see is the distance b/w 49er receiver dwight clark, a tall man even by professional athletic standards, & the ground.
(in this shot we get, what to me was essentially the most amazing pt, a clear view of the fucking air b/w the ground & feet of the incredibly white dwight clark. even though wall’s feet are not touching the ground either, clark’s are almost completely above his knees. HIS KNEES! two other things are obvious from this photograph: 1]everson walls is also committing pass interference by grabbing clark’s jersey. & 2]cowboy’s safety michael downs, leaping in what appears to have a protestory quality, has, like the nearly 13 yr-old me, obviously also discovered at that very second that there is no god.
