Conn. doctor grabs Cundiff's errant kick 

When Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff's field goal attempt sailed wide left in the Patriots 23-20 AFC championship win Sunday, it set off a mad scramble in the end zone seats.

A Connecticut doctor who learned to play football in his hometown in Massachusetts came up with the loose ball.

Dr. Terry Oder of West Hartford, Conn. was at the game with three lifelong friends from Gloucester. The ball bounced off friend Robert Bouchie (BUSH'-ee) and Oder pounced, with what he described as "20 people on my back."

The former youth football running back used his skills to secure the ball. He was besieged by Patriots fans who wanted to touch the ball and have photos taken with it.

The nephrologist has already taken the ball to work to show patients.
