Bears Kicker Cody Parkey Literally Practices Hitting Poles
January 8, 2019 2:16PM CST
If you’re a Chicago Bears fan, you’re probably still upset about Cody Parkey missing the potential game-winning field goal on Sunday.
For everyone else, it’s still pretty amazing that he somehow hit both the goalpost AND the crossbar . . . especially since he’s hit the goalpost on five OTHER kicks this season alone, including FOUR times in a single game. (Here’s video.)
Well, maybe there is an explanation.
Apparently, Cody works on his accuracy by PRACTICING HITTING POLES. In fact, in 2016 he posted a video of himself nailing a light pole. And back in 2012, he posted a TRIBUTE to goal posts.
