That's probably the best way to describe EA Sports posting an Instagram Madden NFL 16 simulation shot of Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh's painfully-missed 27-yard field goal from last weekend.
EA ran the Instagram video-game simulation shot as a Throwback Thursday post to Sunday, when Walsh excruciatingly shanked a game-winning field goal, allowing the Seattle Seahawks to leave Minnesota with a 10-9 NFC Wild-Card game victory in tow.
Prior to EA's ultimate trolling — something that the video-game developer is not a stranger to delivering at all — Walsh was already never going to live this missed field goal down. The last thing he needed was this.
EA's IG post shows a Madden NFL 16-simulated Walsh kicking the field goal with three lines of trajectory way off to the left — just like his actual 27-yard attempt sailed this past Sunday, a day that Vikings' fans will never forget.
If some people are kicking Walsh while he's down — pardon the pun — others are taking pity on him. ESPN is reporting that the 26-year-old Vikings kicker visited Northpoint Elementary School in Minnesota on Thursday to thank a bunch of first-graders, who wrote him letters of encouragement after he missed the field goal.
Walsh told ESPN that he received "too many [letters] to count — probably from every one of those kids."
