Blair Walsh Visits First-Graders That Sent Him Supportive Letter After FG Miss

Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh likely had the worst day of his life last Sunday when he missed a potential game-winning kick in the final seconds against the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Playoff Wild Card round. Walsh received hate by Vikings fans on social media but not everyone got on his case.

Walsh answered questions from the students and gave the tough answers, such as the following:
