Still kicking himself

I'm not a San Diego Chargers fan, but as a University of Iowa fan, I felt bad for Nate Kaeding when his end-of-the-game field goal try sailed wide right of the goal post two weeks ago against the New York Jets. He never seemed to miss those kicks at Iowa. Actually, I don't feel as bad for him after reading the first sentence of this article; there could be worse things than living as a wealthy professional athlete in beautiful San Diego. But Kaeding is a small-town Iowa City guy at heart, which this piece illustrates. It's always nice to go home when things are tough.
