Remembering Brett Bech

I stumbled upon this story on NOLA.com. Looks like former LSU Tiger and New Orlean Saint Brett Bech will be at the Superdome on Sunday, signing autographs at the Saints' Hall of Fame Museum before kickoff.

My Brett Bech anecdote: I remember Bech well from his time with the Saints. His crowning moment was a home game I attended at the end of the 1998 season against the Buffalo Bills. I was eighteen at the time and he ended that game with four catches for 113 yards and two touchdowns  - including what will go down in my opinion as one of the most unreal grabs made by a Saint in history. On that play: Billy Joe Tolliver overthrew a ball in the end zone and Bech dove to haul in the touchdown pass, completely outstreched with one hand. He also scored on a 72 yard pass in that game. The Saints lost the game 45-33, but that was the best game of his career and one of the the best catches I've ever seen period. I've had a chance to watch Eric Martin and Joe Horn in their prime, and neither had a highlight reel grab like the one I saw Bech haul in on that day. 

Do any of you have Brett Bech memories?
