Happy 9/9/09. Look at Kip Smith kicking a 67-yard field goal

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Good morning.

It's 9/9/09 and for some reason we remember that all multiples of 9, when the individuals numbers are added together, are divisible by 9.

In less nerdy news, a high school kid in Colorado booted a 67-yard field goal this weekend.

*Fast forward to the 1:01 mark for proof.




Kip Smith set the state record after his team made a fair catch on a punt. It pays to know the ins and outs of the rulebook.

The same rule is present in college and in the NFL, but kickers can't tee the ball up. Tee or not, Smith's kick is pretty impressive in that it clears the crossbar by a healthy margin.
