  • Free Kick FAIL! (Video)

    Free Kick FAIL! (Video)

    All that time spent figuring out a way to deceive the opposition, it appears as though these three players from French amateur club FC Mulhouse forgot to decide on who would actually take the shot.  The result would be one of the most embarrassing free kick attempts to date. On second thought, I don’t believe […]

  • A Soccer Goalie Trick Shot Video? Why Not? (Video)

    A Soccer Goalie Trick Shot Video? Why Not? (Video)

    If a third-string college quarterback and an NHL superstar can have their own trick-shot videos, why can’t a soccer goalkeeper, right? That was what Lassi Hurskainen was probably thinking when he decided to grab a camera, a soccer ball and a pair of cleats, and put together a rather impressive trick-shot video of his own.  […]

    Wayne Rooney’s Spectacular Goal vs. Samuel Eto’o ‘s Incredible Miss (Videos)

    This past weekend in European club soccer action brought us some incredible highlights and some rather embarrassing lowlights. Most notable among the highlights was the unbelievable overhead strike from Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney, which many are now referring to as the “wonder goal.”  Not only was it a wonderful display of execution from the Man […]

  • Coming Up A Belt Short Of A Photo With Lionel Messi (Video)

    Coming Up A Belt Short Of A Photo With Lionel Messi (Video)

    A belt.  For one poor soul, that would prove to be the difference between a photo with the world’s top footballer, Lionel Messi, and public embarrassment on national television. Attempting to chase down the Barcelona star at the airport for a once in a lifetime photo opportunity, this man’s hustle left him with a difficult […]

    Obnoxious Celebration Earns Danish Footballer A Punch In The Face (Video)

    After all of the showboating and overzealous celebrations that we have seen in the game of football, it is about time someone took a punch in the face for these obnoxious acts. All that sitting on toilets, giving birth to balls, Lady Gaga impersonations and Arabian Nights themes were really beginning to agitate me, and […]

  • Inter’s Chivu Sucker-Punches Bari’s Rossi (Video)

    Inter’s Chivu Sucker-Punches Bari’s Rossi (Video)

    It looks like hockey isn’t the only sport with a sucker-punch problem. Players from Inter and Bari did their best rendition of Jordan Staal vs. Brandon Prust during Serie A action on Thursday, with Inter’s Cristian Chivu playing the role of Staal and Bari’s Marco Rossi playing Prust.  Following an Inter free kick, Chivu was […]

  • Brazilian Keeper Scores, Tears ACL Celebrating (Video)

    Brazilian Keeper Scores, Tears ACL Celebrating (Video)

    If I ever coached my own soccer team, I would be sure to implement the following rule: Goalies are banned from partaking in any sort of celebration.  No matter what the occasion, whether they have just made a save on a penalty shot, scored a goal, or won a championship, they are prohibited from engaging […]

  • In Your Face (GIF)

    In Your Face (GIF)

    A hug is supposed to be one of the most loving, caring acts two humans can take part in.  It can bring someone joy in the darkest of times, and provide comfort to those in need.  However, a hug is not always administered in such a warm manner.  Sometimes that hug can turn into a […]

  • Ronaldinho Shows He Can Score From Behind The Net (Video)

    Ronaldinho Shows He Can Score From Behind The Net (Video)

    If the sport of soccer-golf ever existed, I’m sure Ronaldinho would be among the best at it.  Just check out the way he lofts these soccer balls into the air from behind the net, putting just the right amount of backspin on each shot in order to get the ball to kick back across the […]

  • Worst Dad Ever Heckles Kid During Indoor Soccer Game (Video)

    Worst Dad Ever Heckles Kid During Indoor Soccer Game (Video)

    Only one month into 2011 and already we have ourselves a potential winner of the award for “Worst Dad of the Year,” thanks to this rather pathetic man. While taking in his son’s youth indoor soccer game, dad seemed to be more focused on heckling number 22 of the opposition, rather than focusing on the […]

  • Hilarious Stretcher FAIL! (Video)

    Hilarious Stretcher FAIL! (Video)

    If this guy can’t lift a stretcher, how did he ever get this job?  Did he lie on his application form?  Or was the ability to carry an individual on a stretcher not part of the requirements for a job that asks you to do just that? Whatever the case may be here, this poor […]

  • Very Sneaky (GIF)

    Very Sneaky (GIF)

    Being the last line of defense, goalies are often so fixated on what is going on in front of them that they forget to remain aware of what is happening behind them.  That rarely ends up costing them, but in this case it clearly did. Some may call this tactic smart or sneaky.  Others would […]

  • Double Celebration FAIL! (GIF)

    Double Celebration FAIL! (GIF)

    Failed celebrations are nothing new to the world of sports.  We have seen plenty of them before, whether it was Nate Robinson going up and over Paul Pierce before landing on his neck, or Zlatan Ibrahimovic hyper-extending his elbow during a fist-pump. However, it isn’t often that we bear witness to the incredibly embarrassing double […]
