'Old man' kicks long field goals at Colts game

Turns out this old fellow had quite the leg. (via screenshot)

So as part of the NFL’s “Crucial Catch” promotion, the Indianapolis Colts offered to donate $70,000 to cancer research if a fan could kick field goals from 20, 30 and 40 yards. Seems like a pretty large task, right? And the chosen fan, apparently an elderly fellow with a cane, didn’t seem to give much hope of securing that donation.

But go ahead and watch the video:


Yes, that’s former Colts punter Pat McAfee hidden under that old-man mask, booting his way to a big chunk of change. Nice work there from the Colts and from McAfee. And he might want to keep his phone close; plenty of teams could use a good field goal kicker, old man/ex-punter or no.
