I don’t find myself saying that too often these days, since as we’ve spiraled deeper and deeper into the triplet Black Holes of globalism, futility, and collapse the phrase becomes less of a truism and more empty bluster—asthmatic rah-rah from a spirit squad blind to the fact that the game is over, their side was whipped like a redheaded stepchild, and the home-team fans have long since filed out of the stadium in dejection and defeat, going home to console themselves into stupefaction with strong drink.
In this instance, though, the slogan is most apt, and no two ways about it.
Everything about this video is incredible. A stray cat is hanging for dear life so some Miami students get underneath with an American flag and the crowd reaction when they safely catch this cat is the stuff of legends.

Another angle. As he says, note the delighted roar of the crowd for AmeriCat’s amazing reprieve:

Like a fuckin’ BOSS, baby! As Tom Cruise so memorably said:
Beautiful is precisely what it was. Granted that YMMV, as always, I don’t think “legend” is too strong a word, myself.
