The kick that started it all

Back in the summer time occasionally I used to just post a picture with a quick sentence or two and go to the beach.  I haven't done that in a long time, but today is one of those days.  So before I head out the door to watch one of the most anticipated regular season NFL games in a long time, I leave you with this: the greatest kick in NFL history, and the game that changed the course of fate in the universe and sent the Patriots and the city of Boston on an unprecedented run of sports dominance.

Amazingly, that's the only clip of this moment available on youtube.  And although it's pretty crappy, I did notice something from it for the first time: the unmistakable groan of the crowd as soon as Vinatieri kicked it.  While it was happening I remember having exactly that reaction, right off his foot the low line drive looked as if it had no chance at all.
