I Got a Kick out of This—Literally

In comparison, shooting a round ball into a net from 25 feet seems much easier than this:

Does the NFL know about this guy?

The perfect "story behind the story" for this would be that he had to do so many "takes" to compile the video that his kicking leg fell off.

NYCelt, is this a possible direction for Michael?

Beat,

Thanks for that update. I'm sure that kicking under NFL pressure is different from making a video when, with each miss, you can keep trying until you get it right. But there's no denying the potential the guy has. I hope he makes it.

At least, it's a "feel good" story to savor as 2012 draws to a close.

The tryout having been with the Jets, I would suggest he checks his hospitalization coverage if they keep him.

Sam, I hadn't seen your earlier question on Michael as a kicker. Interesting enough the father of a friend of his was a kicker on Green Bay's Arena League team. I have a feeling that kid will be our kicker going forward!
