The most notable catch durante an American football gioco between Miami and Appalachian State did not even happen the field.
cat had got into Duro Rock Stadium, then got caught by one of its paws the facade of the upper deck durante the first quarter.
It eventually fell to the lower level of the stadium, where fans using an American flag as a makeshift net were able to catch it before it was carried chiuso to safety.
“They were trying to grab it from above and they couldn’t reach it but they were scaring it downward,” said Craig Cromer, a facilities at the University of Miami and season-ticket holder who with his wife Kimberly brings the flag to each home gioco.
“It hung there for a little while with its two front paws, then one paw, then I was like, ‘Oh my goodness, it’s coming soon’.”
That is when the Cromers unhooked the flag from the ties they use to keep it a railing and hoped for the best. The petrified cat fell, bounced a bit chiuso the flag and eventually was secured by some durante the nearby student section before being brought away by stadium security workers.
The cat did not show any signs of injury. The Cromers, other than a spilled beverage and getting sprayed by the dangling cat, were otherwise obbiettivo.
“Strangest thing that’s ever happened at a gioco,” Kimberly Cromer said.
