Blair Walsh should probably stay away from social media for a while after last-gasp field goal miss
Jesus, it's right out of a movie.
Or just Blair Walsh's worst nightmare.
Being a kicker in the NFL is a lovely, old job, let's be honest. And, when the Minnesota Vikings kicker had them 9-0 ahead in the fourth quarter of their playoff game with the Seahawks, he probably thought he was about to rob some legendary status for himself around the streets of Minneapolis.

A chance to do the impossible with the most possible of kicks. Send the Seahawks out and go marching into the last four of the NFC Championship.
But he shanked his kick, laces out or not, and he'll have to live with it. It might be tougher to do so in this digital age.
Laces out, Dan. The God damn laces are out!
They'll toast him in Seattle.

A watched pot never boils.
People can and will find anything you post on social media. Blair Walsh vine from 2013. https://t.co/8IdfQUkmWq

He won't even become a quiz question, but a trick question.
It's all in my head.
