Best catch ever?

I don't much like sports, and I hardly ever watch football, but I can't believe anybody would be unimpressed by this catch:

I'd say it's up there.

As a gravitationally-enhanced person, I'm impressed when anyone goes parallel to the ground for any reason.

@Ian - Though these are fun to watch, they are in no way as impressive (to me). First, they are all catching with two hands and facing the ball. Second, they are climbing other players to attain the height. Of course, they also have a lot less padding to protect them when they fall.

@Ben - Fair comment, but how many people do you know who can jump and land with their knees on the shoulder of a 7+ foot tall man?

@Ian - That is certainly true. Whether they are the most amazing catches or not, they are certainly very impressive feats of athleticism and skill.
