Steven Hauschka is prepping for Minnesota by kicking frozen footballs

Friday January 8th, 2016

The conditions at TCF Bank Stadium in Minnesota on Sunday will border on uninhabitable.

The forecast calls for a high of three degrees, and a low of minus-four, which will send anyone outdoors into a shiver, and transform the game footballs into rocks.

Luckily for the Seahawks, kicker Steven Hauschka is prepared for this game. He left some balls in the freezer to bring them down to four degrees.


One of a few trips to the freezer this week to collect K balls to get ready for Sunday ❄️❄️ 4F!
