'The Pass' is a daily topic for Flutie

Twenty-two years after he launched "The Pass" in the Orange Bowl, No. 22 still is asked about it on average once per day.

And Natick's Doug Flutie is OK with that.

Thanksgiving Day was the 22nd anniversary of Flutie's game-winning touchdown pass into the awaiting arms of Boston College teammate Gerard Phelan in the end zone.

Boston College 47, Miami 45.

"Even though I had a ton of comeback wins in the Canadian Football League, and a bunch more in the NFL, this is my trademark, the one people remember," Flutie told Peter Kerasotis, a columnist at Florida Today of Melbourne Beach, Fla. in a column published Thursday. "It's good to be remembered for something."

Flutie was back in Miami last night as an analyst for ESPN's Boston College-Miami game.
