Neil DeGrasse Tyson Cleared Up the NFL Seahawks-Eagles Drama With Math

Neil deGrasse Tyson, noted Expert in All Things, graciously opened the doors of his immense knowledge vault to the world of professional sports on Tuesday as he weighed in on NFL drama between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Seattle Seahawks. On Sunday, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw a lateral pass to running back Mike Davis that moved forward but looked like it went backward, causing a huge controversy because it’s illegal for a player to throw forward after he’s crossed the scrimmage line. In his argument, which he posted to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon with a video of the pass, he brought in a math reference to the obscure “Galilean transformation” to make his point.
