Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey goes on wild ride with Blue Angels
Playing for the Dallas Cowboys is a wild experience of ups and downs.
Kicker Dan Bailey went on an even bigger ride this offseason with the Blue Angels at Pensacola Naval Air Station.
"Growing up, I’ve always wanted to come out and take a ride in one of these aircrafts," Bailey told the NFL Network. "It’s always been a dream of mine. It’s just always something I’ve had on my bucket list."
Multiple g-forces will make most civilians queasy, but Bailey says playing in the NFL prepared him for the 45-minute flight.
"I think the training we do in football — in kicking especially, a lot of lower-leg work — definitely helped me, but man … It’s still a beating," Bailey said.

Flying with the Blue Angels might have been a life-long dream, but surely making a game-winning field goal in the Super Bowl for the Cowboys would top that.
Jerry Jones hopes so, and he’s counting on it after giving Bailey a seven-year contract extension in January.
