Totti Chops Down The Legs Of Balotelli…Timberrrr!!!!!

totti kicks balotelliI think it is fair to say that approximately 95% of all soccer players who hit the ground in pain are likely putting on an act for the referees, but every once in a while there is some truth behind their cries of agony.

Italian soccer sensation Francesco Totti has become well known for his devastating strikes and blistering free kicks.  During a Serie A league match Wednesday against first place club Inter Milan, he put his lethal right boot to use, but this time his target was not the ball.  Instead, it was the leg of Inter’s Mario Balotelli that would be on the receiving end of a swift kick from Italy’s golden boy.

Balotelli is not the most liked player in Italy.  In fact, it may be fair to say that he is one of the most hated.  And so although Totti was shown a red card for his actions, he has also likely endeared himself (once again) to soccer fans across the country.
