Former NFL/AFL kicker Paul Edinger has a kicking camp in Costa Rica. He named the camp "Kickin It In Costa Rica" where he offers his professional services to young kickers who aspire to be professionals. In Costa Rica.
This story was talked about today on 670 AM in Chicago and according to those hosts, Edinger had (has?) a home in Costa Rica so obviously kickin' it there isn't as absurd as it sounds. Plus, as this blog post from Sun-Times last year told us, Edinger is very entrepreneurial when it comes to placekicking. However, the website appears to be designed by Stephen Glass's brother and the daily itinerary at Paul Edinger's Kickin' It In Costa Rica camp is a little Jack Johnson-y. Oh and [Sic'd]
