Art Carmody is officially a professional kicker

Move aside Derrick Caracter, the biggest news in the world of Louisville athletics today is that 2006 Lou Groza Award winner and 1985-2007 Arthur Herbert Fonzarelli Award for Excellence in Coolness winner (and 2008 front-runner) Art Carmody is the newest member of the Shreveport-Bossier City BattleWings.

The BattleWings, a member of the af2 arena football league, are already 14 games into the regular season, and thus Carmody's campaign with the club will last just two glorious weeks.

"I'm not sure why Art isn't on an NFL roster, but we're glad to have him on our team," Battle Wings coach Jon Norris (MTV?) said. "He could be taken by an NFL team at any time."

The world shares in coach Norris's confusion, especially given the results of a recent study by Columbia University.

Wow. Pretty strong stuff there. You have to figure that this is exactly the type of thing that's going to make NFL owners and general managers kick themselves when they look back at it ten years from now.

Of course every man's loss is another man's gain, and that's already quite evident in the fact that Shreveport-Bossier City BattleWings jersey sales are up 100% since the announcement of Carmody's signing.

Just get it here by game day UPS.
