Twitter stunned by Adam Vinatieri’s huge preseason kick
Adam Vinatieri may be 45 years old, but it seems he’s getting better with age.

Here’s a look at the reactions on Twitter from folks who were impressed.

Just when you question the sanity of scrutinizing a ho-him NFL preseason game, Adam Vinatieri kicks a 57-yard FG. And it cleared crossbar with a little room. Ageless, 45-year-old wonder. Again. #colts

Vinatieri, a career 84 percent kicker on field goals, has been in the NFL since 1996. His impressive 57-yard bomb on Monday matched his career high from a regular season game, which came in 2002.
