Paul Scholes

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.

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.

If you’re a college basketball fan, then you shouldn’t be doing anything other than watching the Big 10/ACC challenge tonight. It’s better than all of those reruns of How I Met Your Mother that you know you’re going to end up watching. Don’t lie.
