April Fools!!

Note: This was posted in April 2003.

Amidst all the war talk lately, I thought I would try and lighten the mood a little...

If you forgot about April Fool's Day, I tried to add a couple of hints in the article.

- The article was from the DI, but it was being hosted on our Kicking.com site. I simply copied the files and structure of the DI site, and replaced their article with mine.
- The top of the page had "Fake Kicking.com" written near the Daily Iowan banner
- Kickers never get into fights, especially with each other...(Update 11/1/09 - Actually a CFL kicker and punter recently got into a fight with each other and they were on the same team, but these cases are rare...)

Thanks to Nate Kaeding and the Daily Iowan (who was an unknowing contributor to my April Fool's prank).

Now I'll have to think up something better for next year...

If you missed it yesterday, here is the link to the article.

I wanted to give you a tremendous report on the kicking strap I purchased from Kicking.com. When I originally purchased it, I was kicking about 45 yard field goals consistently (that was in March). My minor league season runs March through September, so no weight training can be attributed to this story. It was at least 90% the kicking strap. I am now in July just four months later, kicking 55 yards consistently. I recently made a 50 yarder and a 48 yarder in an All star game. My longest now is 60 yards. That is a gain of 15 yards in a very short time. One thing I noticed was the height on my kicks is tremendous. I also attribute that to the kicking strap. I am, on long field goals, making it nearly half way to the top of the goal post. On extra points now, I kick as high as the NFL regulation goal posts. Thank you so much for your website and this kicking strap. I even have had two NFL scouts call my agent for game and tape info!
