Six months ago, Sam Gordon was just your typical nine-year-old. The native of South Jordan, Utah, liked reading and science, and she loved playing sports. But one day last November everything changed. Her father, Brent, posted a highlight video of Sam, with her ponytail sticking out of her helmet, making crazy cuts on the football field as she sprinted past boy after boy in her coed youth league. "I put the video up so that Sam could look back on it in a few years and be able to say, 'Hey, remember when I beat all those boys?' " he says. "I thought it was something she and her friends could enjoy in a few years." More »

In one of the weirdest Super Bowls we've ever seen, there was no shortage of huge plays. One of the best happened in the second quarter. Baltimore Ravens Jacoby Jones dashed by a confused San Francisco 49ers secondary to get wide open downfield. When Jones turned, caught the pass, fell backwards, then alertly popped up and scored, the 56-yard touchdown that put the Ravens up 21-3.
Well, aside from the lights going out in the Superdome, we wanted to show you, our faithful readers, the best play of the game. It came down to a choice between Jacoby Jones and Jacoby Jones. We decided to go with his long catch instead of his scintillating kickoff return.
A play like that was just begging to be reenacted by some toys. So we took the OYO Sportstoys commemorative Super Bowl minifigures and created a stop-motion animation of that long Flacco toss. Admittedly, OYO doesn't make their Lego-like figures for every single player, so we had to sub in 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree at safety. Check out the video above and see an animated gif after the jump.
