Seattle Seahawks kicker Blair Walsh had a message for his former team the Minnesota Vikings on Friday night. Following a successful field goal kick, Walsh pointed and stared down his former coach Mike Zimmer.

According to Walsh, this was in response to his former teammates heckling him earlier in the game.
“I simply was just responding to getting taunted. I didn’t say anything. When you’ve got guys who were your teammates for five years yelling at you when you’re trying to kick, it’s just odd. And I hope they were in jest. And I hope they didn’t mean it because I didn’t mean anything with mine, but it was definitely not out of nowhere.”
You have to love preseason kicker drama. This is sports in August.
