People it would suck to be

Astonishingly, ESPN and others seem to have missed this entirely, though of all pitiful sources, Wikipedia has the call, assuring that I didn’t imagine it. Here’s the link, tenth graf down (as of this writing); reproduced below with emphasis mine:

On the next series of downs, Patriots’ cornerback Asante Samuel nearly reeled in a game-ending interception on a ball intended for Tyree, but the ball slipped through his fingertips, thus preserving the drive. On the next play, the Giants faced 3rd-and-5 from their own 44 with 1:15 remaining. Manning dropped back to pass and was nearly sacked, but managed to slip away from lineman Jarvis Green and threw a 32-yard completion to Tyree, who made a leaping catch…

Asante Samuel is now the new Bill Buckner.
