SI Vault Podcast: Remebering Doug Flutie's 'Hail Flutie,' show highlights

Friday November 27th, 2015

The SI Vault Podcast takes you through sports history with a dive into the archives of Sports Illustrated. Host Ted Keith speaks with legendary athletes as well as the writers who produced some of the most memorable pieces in the magazine’s 61-year history, and every week will include a reading of a classic SI story.

In this week's episode, host Ted Keith reads John Underwood’s story “It wasn't a Fluke. It was a Flutie,” from the December 3, 1984 issue of Sports Illustrated about Doug Flutie’s Hail Mary when he was the quarterback for Boston College leading his team to an amazing win over the Miami Hurricanes in one of the most memorable moments in sports history. Then, as we take a break for the holidays, we’ve gathered some of our favorite segments from the show’s history in a “Best of the SI Vault Podcast” segment following the story.
