FOOTBALL
Placekickers shouldn't be touched. Although he becomes a defender—and therefore fair game—once he boots a kick-off, the kicker is considered off-limits when he's not part of the action. That didn't stop Oilers coach Jerry Glanville from sending linebacker Walter Johnson to hit Saints kicker Morten Andersen after the opening kickoff in a 1987 game. Glanville claimed he wanted to get Andersen's attention. "He missed two kicks," Glanville said with a shrug, "so I guess it worked."

Do not be a surf hog."
