In case you missed it, fans at the Miami-Appalachian State NFL game in Miami on the weekend made the craziest catch of the game.

But it wasn’t a football.

A stray cat somehow got into the stadium and fell from the upper deck – but some quick-thinking fans managed to use an American flag to catch it.

Miami coach Manny Diaz learned of the incident after the game.

“I don’t know anything about that or what was going on,” he said.

“But I’ll tell you, if the cat will help us in our red-zone offense I’m going to see if we can give it a scholarship.”

 

To Markets …

“The RBA in their September meeting maintained the planned taper but extended their commitment to buy bonds at $A4bn/week until February 2022. There may also be a preview of the RBA’s new forecasts,” he said.
