Gridiron Heights, Ep. 8: Unexpected Guest Crashes the Wilsons' Baby Shower

Andrew Gould@AndrewGould4Featured ColumnistNovember 1, 2016

This week in Gridiron Heights, a downtrodden group of kickers gather for support.

As they have learned the hard way, nobody cares about kickers until they mess up. Before his Week 7 missed overtime field goal against the Arizona Cardinals, fans paid so little attention to Steven Hauschka that they didn't realize his actual name is Stephen.

At least Dustin Hopkins and Roberto Aguayo also understand the kicker struggle.

On a happier note, Russell Wilson throws an early baby shower with Seattle Seahawks teammates and some surprise guests. Yet it appears the quarterback didn't invite Hauschka. Figures.

   

Gridiron Heights is a weekly animated series about the NFL on Bleacher Report.
