On January 7, 2017, at 11:06 PM EST, SB Nation published a post entitled “Doug Baldwin caught a pass with his butt.”

A bit of background: in a first round NFL playoff game between the Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw a pass to wide receiver Doug Baldwin. Baldwin rolled to the ground as he reined in the pigskin, tucking it against his hip and then rear end to prevent it from touching the ground. The pass was initially ruled incomplete, but after reviewing the play, the officials reserved their decision, determining that Baldwin had achieved the rare, but perfectly legal “butt catch.”

In conclusion: sports fans should care about this because it is one of the most impressive displays of athleticism this NFL season, while people in general should care because it is a firmly established truth that butts are hilarious.
