What it’s like to be a football hero

In Today’s Tennessean, Titans kicker Rob Bironas describes the feeling of kicking a 60-yard field goal (the sixth in NFL history, tied for fourth longest) to win a game: “(It’s) like a half court shot in basketball.”

Bironas forgot to add this: If you’re shooting that half-court shot in windy 40 degree weather in in front of 65,000 screaming people with eleven 250+ lbs. men in pads about to crush you.

Later: Mr. Roboto finds some folks who probably aren’t happy the Titans won yesterday. The Exxon stations who promise free coffee after a win.
