As Jim Croce once explained, there are some things you just don’t do, including:
1. Don’t tug on Superman’s cape.
2. Don’t pull the mask of the ol’ Lone Ranger.
3. Don’t stab Leroy Brown so many times he looks like a puzzle with a couple of pieces gone.
4. Don’t mess around with Jim.
…and in there somewhere he pretty clearly says “don’t kick in the wind”. I’d have to check Lyrics Freak, but I’ve got this video to back me up. From 101 Great Goals:
Maccabi Haifa took on Dynamo Kiev in a friendly today, ahead of Israel’s friendly with Ukraine, and the match was played in ridiculous weather conditions as the wind took on biblical proportions.
The friendly match was only 60 minutes long but there was enough time for one of the strangest goals ever seen. Kiev’s second saw Haifa goalie Assaf Mendes take a goal kick.
Mendes’ punt forward did travel some distance before incredibly coming back on itself past the stunned custodian.
Imagine how bad it would’ve been if he’d spit into that wind?
