I guess the yelling GOAAAAAAAAAL thing is the best part of being a soccer announcer, but I feel like if I watched a guy try to jump into the stands and end up trapped in a field-side bush I’d stop screaming for a second and say something about it. I don’t know, ask if he’s okay, laugh at him, something.
Fabio Santos scored with a backwards header during Vitoria’s 3-1 weekend win over Criciuma and, in an incredibly human moment, tried to celebrate with a Lambeau Leap and got eaten by a hedge. That’s a nice microcosm of life, isn’t it? Passion and a pair of legs can give you the grace to score a complex soccer goal and the futility to think you can clear a bush while everyone’s watching. You retire now and die in peace, Fabio, for you alone have encapsulated life.
And hey, get used to these soccer videos, because LeBron James is going to spend the next year and a half dunking at Jewish Community Centers and sadly this is more newsworthy.
