"Laces out" in Ace Ventura refers to the best form for kicking a field goal in football. The ball should be positioned with its laces out (facing the goalpost) rather than with the laces in (facing the kicker). The trajectory of the ball is more easily controlled when it is positioned laces out, which makes it more desirable when kicking the field goal. In the film, "Lois" Einhorn/Ray Finkle blames Dan Marino for positioning the football laces in and costing him a Super-Bowl-winning field goal. His anger about this prompts him to kidnap Marino and Snowflake, the mascot for the Miami Dolphins.

But it was interesting that two field goals, especially the game loser for the Vikings were "laces out". Holders are meticulously trained to make the football's laces face away from the kicker. Supposedly it fucks up the kick or at least the kicker's concentration. I know nobody cares for football around these here parts, but definitely odd it would happen TWICE in one game and not have been addressed to the holder after the first one. Either way a lot of money was made in Vegas and other booking orgs just by that alone. I have no idea, but I like the idea of conspiracy to throw the game better than just a simple mistake because it's more interesting that way.
