He Found Captain Winkie

Fascinating story over the weekend about Cole Ford, the former kicker for the Oakland Raiders who was released after missing a crucial kick against Tampa Bay, and later landed into a mental institution after he fired shots outside the Las Vegas home of Sigfried and Roy. Yes, you read that right.

A failed former NFL kicker goes crazy and tries to kidnap/kill a celebrity- isn't that the plot of "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective"? At least Ford didn't have a sex change operation and turn into Sean Young.

his story doesn't sound too different from Ricky Williams. Other than, you know, shooting up Sigfried & Roy's house.

Although, he does have a point about their "unhealthy intimacy" with the tigers.
