Christmas Scrabble miracle

Last night while playing Scrabble I experienced a little Christmas miracle of my own. I was in 2nd place and it wasn't looking good for a comeback. All the letters were gone from the bag and we had only to play what remained before us. And then lo and behold, I looked at my letters, looked at the board, and promptly scored the highest single score I've ever gotten in one play. I laid down "brittle" onto a "d" to form "brittled." Not only was it a Scrabble (entitling me to an extra 50 points), I also played it on the triple word score. Since no letters remained in the bag, my use of all my letters also ended the game. 126 points for one word, and the game was mine.
