If you stepped outside your mid-January, Netflix-addled cave recently you probably heard something about Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh, and his devastating botched attempt at taking home the W last weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. To put it lightly, it was an unanticipated moment of sheer unfettered insanity.


A 27-yard-attempt miss. Nobody saw that coming. Check out this absurd compilation of fan reactions from both ends of the spectrum:


Anyways following all that madness, a first-grade class wrote a collection of encourage letters to Blair Walsh to cheer the saddened soul up. He responded in pretty much the best and most gracious way possible by visiting the kids today at Northpoint Elementary School in Blaine, Minnesota.


The children passed along advice in their letters like, 'you are handsome,' and 'everyone makes mistakes sometimes. One time I made a mistake when I was doing a cartwheel.'


Cartwheels are tough as fu*k though, so totally understand on that account. Suffice to say, all parties involved were feeling seven kinds of thankful. Keep your head up Walsh!

Quidditch being the only sport I follow, I don't know a lot about Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Mike Evans, but I do know he's my favorite NFL player because of his epic Harry Potter groom's cake. Dude is apparently a huge fan, and he isn't afraid to show it.

Michael Sam made waves the other year when he was drafted by the St. Louis Rams as the first openly gay NFL player. Today, amid talks that the supreme court will take a closer look at the constitutional grounds for gay marriage, Sam posted this photo on Instagram proposing to his long-time boyfriend Vito Cammisano.

In their game against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught a pass from Eli Manning with just one hand, scoring a touchdown.

Unfortunately the Giants lost 31-28, but that catch though...

"That is absolutely impossible what he just did," said NBC commentator Cris Collinsworth. "That may be the greatest catch I've ever seen in my life.

The NFL tweeted that Odell's catch basically pulled a Kardashian butt.

And it has also inspired some "Things Odell Could Catch" memes on Twitter.

These bros just climbed their way to legendary status, and for the sake of their professional careers, I'm kind of hoping this video defies logic, and doesn't go viral. Tough one to rationalize with a law-abiding employer. Buut I mean, come on. Can you blame our bros of the hour anyways?

Considering the fact that the average price of a ticket for Super Bowl 51 clocked in at the bank account slaying-sum of $4,744, and the highest value ticket was a reported $74,928 (more than average salary of someone with advanced college degree), it's inevitable that people would go to staggering heights (literally in this case) to sneak into the game.
