Five Fun Facts about Josh Lambo

*This offseason, we want you to get to know our players a little more off the field. 

While you may be aware Josh Lambo ranks sixth on the franchise's all-time list with 52 career field goals, here are five fun facts you likely don't know about the kicker:*

  1. Bacon Buff: Lambo's favorite food is bacon.  While he said he puts bacon on a lot of things, you won't find him nabbing a sweet and salty combination any time soon.  "I'm more of a bacon purist.  I'm not into (bacon donuts).  A chocolate cake donut with chocolate frosting is the way to go."
  1. World Traveler: "I've been to 22 counties.  My favorite countries are a tie between Northern Ireland and combined Belgium, Holland, Germany."  Lambo said he's a big fan of the scenery in Northern Ireland and likes the atmosphere in the latter three countries.
  1. Double Pro: Prior to Lambo's NFL career, he played another type of football.  Lambo was drafted by the MLS in 2008 and was in the league for about four seasons.  After his professional soccer career ended, he went to Texas A&M and won the placekicking job.  The rest, as they say, is history.  However, neither sport is Lambo's favorite.  "My favorite sport is ping pong.  I can beat most people and I'm very competitive." 
  1. Musically Inclined: Lambo is an avid guitar player and plays both acoustic and electric.  "I started when I was in high school.  My dad inspired me to get into music but my favorite guitarist is John Mayer.  He is unreal."  Lambo believes Mayer "became good" after "Your Body is a Wonderland." 
  1. Halloween Countdown is on: Lambo isn't a Halloween guy and hasn't dressed up since he was a kid, but it's never too late to start. "I have been plotting this year's Halloween costume since before last Halloween."  While he obviously can't reveal it, he did give some hints: "It has to do with my hair, my beard and a very popular television show."  October 31 can't come soon enough.
