Kickalicious returns with another trick-shot video

Former Detroit Lions kicker Havard Rugland (a.k.a. Kickalicious) is back with another trick-shot video.

Kicker Havard Rugland hasn't been a member of the Detroit Lions since August 2013, but he's still a pretty big fan of the team, as evidenced by his Twitter page. I suppose that's partly because another NFL team hasn't given him a shot since the Lions let him go before the 2013 season. He was able to capitalize on the fame of his "Kickalicious" video by securing an opportunity with the Lions, but nothing like that has come along since then.

So what has Rugland been up to lately? Well, in partnership with Pepsi Max Norge, he has released another Kickalicious video. Take a look:

My first reaction to this video is that I really need to visit Norway at some point. I'm not exactly interested in kicking footballs off mountains, but it certainly looks like a nice place to visit.

My other main reaction is that Rugland clearly still has some serious kicking skills. It seems unlikely at this point that he will ever break through and become an NFL kicker, but never say never, I suppose.
