Paul Scholes was considered by many to be one of the most popular players in Manchester United history, and I say that with confidence because I’ve actually heard of him and I barely ever watch soccer. But at age 39, he’s over-the-hill and washed up, relegated to a life of playing charity and rec games for the Cadderton Park Sports Club’s Over 35s League. In a recent game between the Chadderton Park Legends and Chaddy Park Veterans, Scholes proved that he still has it, though, when he nailed this effortless lob shot for a goal from his own half.
*As always, if I got the soccer terminology wrong, I blame the Florida education system for teaching us that soccer is dumb.
