A woman tried to catch a kickoff that went out of the back of the endzone during Saturday’s LSU-Auburn game. It went badly for her. Very badly.
The name of the game in the LSU-Auburn game on Saturday evening would be defense. The name of the game in Call of Duty would be “headshot”. Not many headshots were better than the one in the back of the endzone on an Auburn kickoff.
As the ball was kicked out of the back of the endzone by Auburn kicker Daniel Carlson, a woman tried to corral the ball as it came down.
It was not her best effort.
If this catch — or rather, attempt at a catch — doesn’t make ESPN’s C’Mon Man! segment during Monday Night Countdown this coming Monday, somebody messed up because this is fantastic.
You could make the case that this is better than the actual LSU-Auburn game itself — and it was a five-point game when this happened in the third quarter.

LSU has since cut the Auburn lead to just two points, and the reason the (Auburn) Tigers still lead is because of Carlson’s four field goals inside the first three quarters of a defensive battle. The game hasn’t been short on physicality or comedy.
The game isn’t funny because of what Leonard Fournette is doing to the Auburn defense this time around, but it’s still pretty hilarious. We all have bad days. This poor woman is having a nightmare of a time at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Hopefully, the woman’s just fine. But, that’s not going to keep her from becoming a Grand Theft Auto meme or a YouTube sensation after this weekend. She might get more hits than a Lamar Jackson highlight tape.
In an update, it seems that Ms. Ashley Ward is doing just fine, thankfully.
Just please, don’t put a Crying Jordan face on her. That’d be too much.
