The Curious Case of the Stolen Mike Vanderjagt Pro Bowl Jersey

Former Indianapolis Colts kicker Mike Vanderjagt was pretty good back in the day; so good that he made a Pro Bowl even. Regretfully that is where he went from famous to infamous when Peyton Manning refferred to him as an "idiot kicker" when asked about some disparaging remarks Vanderjagt had made during an interview.That was his only Pro Bowl so I imagine the jersey from...

Stand-up Comic Jeff Dye’s Story About Mike Vanderjagt Is A Lesson In Self-Incrimination

Middle school deciding whether to reinstate Mike Vanderjagt after he allegedly choked student for heckling him

Remember Mike Vanderjagt? Of course you do. Vanderjagt is the guy who served as an above-average placekicker for the Colts for eight seasons from 1998-2005. When at his best, Vanderjagt was one of the better kickers in the league. The problem was he was kind of a blowhard. When Peyton Manning — one of the classiest guys in the NFL — feels the need to call someone an “idiot...
