Kickalicious is a video of a twenty-eight year old Norwegian  Havard Rugland.

See the December 29th, 2012 New York Times article for more details.

The history of American football in Norway.

Meet the Oslo Vikings

I want to know several things:

1.  Is the video real and not Photo Shopped?

2.  Does he play on an organized team now?

3.  If he is that good, is there a reason he didn’t try out for the NFL sooner?

4.  Has he played in a blizzard?  (Think the Green Bay Packers and Lambeau Field).

5.  What about kicking under pressure, with defensive players in his face and trying to block his kicks.

The Jets are giving him a tryout.  I grew up as a New York Jets fan for American Football.  The cynical part of me sees this as another Tim Tebow.  It will blow up in their faces.  There’s confidence for you. 🙂


About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
