I follow him on twitter (I don't know why, but I do) and he's been playing soccer since he retired. Plus its only a try out. Why not?

part of the Gramatica injury is it was against the Giants - but it happened in the first quarter!!
Seems like a Mcmahon move

I had to look it up.

Quote:
Gram疸ica was drafted in the fourth round of the 2001 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals. His NFL career with the Cardinals was promising until 15 December 2001 in a game against the New York Giants. After completing a 42-yard field goal early in the game, Gram疸ica jumped up in celebration and tore his ACL upon landing. Not only did the injury end his season, but the Cardinals ended up losing the game 1713


From the box score he gave them a 3-0 lead!

I was at that game too and thought it was a shorter FG.

We were laughing our asses off that he celebrated like that.

I was also in attendance

Everyone in the Stadium saw him get hurt after celebrating. I think nearly everyone laughed at him. Great blooper.

Yup, I was there too, it happened in front of my end zone and I saw him go down and we were all cracking up, it was so ridiculous.

Pat Tillman came in to kickoff after that for the Cardinals.
The best thing about that kick is that is was like

in the first half in a game the Cards ended up losing.
What celebration was worse?

Blowing out your knee over a FG to make it 3-0, or head-butting a cement wall?

Remember watching that happen live at the old stadium. It was funny for a few seconds then I felt bad for the guy. Forgot his name.
