    OK......within ten seconds of posting that I realized I could right click on it and download it from Safari....but when I just had the URL I couldn't figure out how to save it..is there another way besides making a fool of myself here? ;)

    The way I do it is to copy the URL, open google, paste it into the search box, hit search, then right click the link that shows up in the search results and save it to your hard drive.

    Once the page is loaded (the direct link to the .swf), hold down option and click the URL. :)

    Oh yeah, and then you have to press enter. :)
