A reader of Patrick MaManamon suggested it, and I’m all for it.
I’m not sure how many times it may come up in conversation, but from henceforth, whenever you are referring to the single, curved, pole support of a football goalpost- it shall be named the Dawson Bar.
As in the Phil Dawson Bar. While the Cleveland-Baltimore game earned the Dawson Bar national attention, it was the Buffalo game last week that cemented Dawson’s name on the bar permanently. Some who watched the game may not even be aware of it however.
Let’s go to the tape…
That’s right. Dawson nailed a 49 yard field goal, into a wind that was gusting up to 40 mph, not to mention the snow covered field he was kicking from. And he hit the Dawson Bar for the second time this season. Amazing.
So for reader Andy Kurpik of Dayton, Ohio- Halftime Adjustments is proud to sign the petition to officially rename that piece the Dawson Bar.
