Jerry Seinfeld once observed that you can't over-wet. Because once you're wet, you're wet. No more, no less. Same with dryness and death. You can't over-dry, and you can't over-die. Which explains why calling a timeout in hopes of "icing" a kicker is just plain silly. NFL kickers are famous for having ice water running through their veins. Being cool isn't just part of their job - it's their nature. Besides, what's an extra minute when you've been waiting all week? They know the consequences, and it doesn't faze them. Not one bit. And as Seinfeld would attest, you can't over-freeze, so you certainly can't ice an ice man...

Pro Bowl players are commonly called Pro Bowlers. But for those of you not into the whole brevity thing, please join me in referring to the NFL's all-stars as Professional Bowlers...

Ironic, isn't it, that ball carriers are usually standing up - not touching down - when they score a touchdown? And forward lateral makes about as much sense as vertical horizontal...
