Kicked In by James Carroll

I was with the mother of my child at a babysitting job and we were watching the 2001 Divisional Game against the Raiders (Jan. 19, 2002). We were both in high school. The memory which evokes the most emotion for me is when Adam Vinatieri kicked the game-tying field goal to send the game into overtime. I always remember watching the ball disappear into the snow and the night sky and spinning her around in joy when the referees threw their arms up to signal that the kick was good. It is one of my happiest sports memories and will always be with me.
