Kicking Off The Blog In A Brand New Direction!

Behind that calm demeanor lies the heart of a champion.

Ya know what? I'm sick of baseball. It's time to shake things up and start showing appreciation for the true athlete - the kicker.  Moseley is the only kicker to win a regular season MVP award, but there's no way he'll be the last. Right? Kickers have been getting snubbed for years, and this blog will now be dedicated to getting the MVP trophy back to the real heroes, the Kicker. Remember, it's called FOOTball, not Catchball or Runball or Throwball.

To prove my point, I'll be publishing a new post each day until the next NFL MVP award day (when do they do that? Sometime in May?) We'll be covering all the greats - and Fuad Reveiz.

And who says it has to be a place kicker? Maybe we should talk about the great punters, too, huh? Ray Guy, he's in the Hall of Fame for some reason, why don't we figure out how that happened? Maybe there should be, like, 2 Punters in the Hall Of Fame? Oh, and let's not forget Fuad Reveiz. He should be in the Hall of Fame too.

We'll cover the weird dudes that refused to wear shoes when they kicked. These brave souls had no fear of splinters, loose screws, or stray Lego pieces. Some of them still refuse to wear to shoes to the dinner table. Gutsy. And we'll check in with Fuad to see if he's planning on kicking those footballs any time soon, or can the offense start practice?

We'll talk about this guy. Someone had to kick the extra point after the exhilarating Montana TD passes to Jerry Rice. Maybe it was this guy? He was from Austria.

We'll cover Kicker ROOKIE CARDS! Oh Man, so exciting! The Moseley card at the top is also a rookie card, I think the photo is from his high school yearbook.

We'll discuss Kicker Oddballs! This Greg Coleman card was distributed by local Minnesota Police forces in collaboration with the D.A.R.E. program. Kickers Don't Use Drugs.


  1. Heck yeah! All hail the kicker! I'm taking my collection one step further and focusing one shoeless kickers. Happy Easter and April Fool's Day!

  2. I'm looking forward to the ESPN 30 for 30 on Fuad Reveiz. Hopefully they acknowledge your blog in the credits.

  3. Yay! Football! Four days into this baseball season and I can't wait for it to be over!

  4. Run with it! I mean, kick it off! Lets gets this new look rolling! I mean, KICKING!

  5. Awesome post! I can't get enough Fuad Reveiz. And forget Ronnie Lott or Chuck Bednarik, Mike Lansford is the toughest, baddest dude in NFL history.
