Athletes on the field and around the sports world had strong reactions to Blair Walsh’s missed kick.
The Seattle Seahawks are moving on to the divisional round after a 10–9 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Seattle’s win was greatly aided by Vikings kicker Blair Walsh, who missed a potential game-winning field goal with less than 30 seconds to go.

Players from the Arizona Cardinals, who could face the Seahawks in a potential NFC championship matchup, had some thoughts as well.

Feel terrible for my guys B-Rob and Greenway. Defense played their asses off to hold a very good offense to 10 points.— ChrisWarcraft@mastodon.social (@ChrisWarcraft) January 10, 2016
And a bunch of other people made the same joke.

Did anyone do the "Laces Out!" Thing from Ace Ventura yet? That would be funny and fitting for our real world situation that just occurred.— Tom Crabtree (@itsCrab) January 10, 2016
