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.

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.
