In case you missed the best play of the first half of the Patriots-Packers game – hell, it’s one of the best plays of the entire season – make sure you check out the video below (I’ll try to get a better one later). It’s Patriots G Dan Connolly taking the kickoff return almost all the way to paydirt while using a stiff-arm, a cutback and breaking numerous Packers tackles.

It’s hilarious and awesome:

So, in honor of this momentous occasion – it’s the longest-ever kickoff return by an offensive lineman – here’s a quick top-five Twitter reaction list.

@Greg_A_Bedard I knew I should have made one of my keys to the game Dan Connolly in the kicking game. So stupid.

@QBKILLA (Warren Sapp) Fat Man's Dream!!!!!

@skjensen If Belichick has any sense of humor, which I'm not sure about, Connelly would line up for another return later in the game!

@JeromeSolomon Awesome return. If big man had scored and done the Billy "White Shoes" Johnson funky chicken, the earth would have stopped spinning.

@sportsguy33 Sorry, Dan Connelly's gotta finish that.

As a Packers fan I am disgusted at the horrible special teams coverage (or lack thereof), but as a football fan, it was awesome!
