    Any of you "Glory Days" boys entered into the Chargers Field Goal Challenge ???

    Don't bother. I just sent in my entry, and will splatter any challengers. I actually made a figgie or two in Pop Warner, so be warned. You have no chance against the greatest kicking leg in South Texas. :yes:

    :bolt:

    Now, they just need to pick me, so I can be roundly embarassed ......

    Oh, and I've got ten acres, a kicking tee and an old used gameday Chargers football with which to practice. I can use Mesquite trees as a simulated goalpost.

    I've got the leg. I've got the land. I've got the ball.

    I shall conquer.

    I can practice PAT's on my property... That's about it.

    You should have seen the guy last year. He was pathetic. Missed all three kicks. Couldn't even bounce the thing through the endzone. Pathetic.

    The way the rules on the app read is that there will be four contests, one per month. What are the distances they did it at?

    10 yard line, 20 yard line and ???

    Ok, since you've let that cat out of the bag, you MUST TELL US if you get picked. That way, we know who to point and laugh at...er..."cheer" for. :icon_tease:

    I hope they don't discriminate against me because of my return address being in Texas. I probably should have used EC's address, with my phone number. The contest does say "... open to all residents of the United States...." and doesn't limit it to SD County residents.

    Oh, of course I would PROCLAIM it to the Bolttalk world if I got selected. ... and I'd fully expect to be mocked by the heathens of this community.

    No pressure. None. I hope they don't use those Tony Romo Crisco slick balls.

    Anyone who isn't a weakling should be able to make those from a tee. I have hit a 55 yarder from a tee, but it has been probably 10 years since I even tried.

    In high school I used to dropkick 40 yarders regularly before practice. Coach wanted to give it a shot during a game if we got up by enough... but we never did... 'cause we sucked. Junior college they wouldn't even give me the opportunity even though I could bang 'em from the 35 yard line. Bastards.

    Needless to say... you guys don't want none o' this... :no: :lol:
