    ..."Would the waiter have believed Vinatieri slept in the cab of his pickup truck that first night in Abingdon? Would he have understood they spent a year in that town, working out every day on local high school fields until Vinatieri finally got his form right? And what would that waiter say if he knew they ended every session with a 48-yard kick to win the Super Bowl?

    So yes, that's why Doug was crying that night."....



    Hard work pays off. Good for them.

    Two comments, while still in mid-article:

    • The 48 yard thing is chilling, in a good way
    • There must be a special place in Heaven for TL
