Shooting Soccer Balls Out of a Cannon Is Probably Not a Good Way to Practice Stopping Penalty Kicks (Video)

goalie practices penalty kicks with cannon

If you played baseball, football, or soccer growing up, then chances are at one point or another you heard someone say, “that guy has a cannon” in reference to somebody’s throwing or kicking abilities.

Well, one Slovenian soccer goalie was recently inspired by that old expression to use actual cannons to practice stopping penalty kicks. Was this a good idea? No, absolutely not. In fact, he literally came within a few feet of having his head knocked right off his body.

Thankfully, though, he did not die. And as a result, instead of smashing and burning the camera with which they filmed the stunt in order to erase all evidence of what surely would have been ruled a wrongful death, we have this wonderful YouTube clip:

Kids, don’t try this at home. But if you do, at least have the sense to test it out first and see how fast those balls are going to come out of the cannons. Don’t be caught off guard like this guy.
