Study: Women Less Like to Fake #Soccer Injuries, Would Rather Concentrat on Faking #Orgazms

Okay, we made that last part up, but it is true that a new study by Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center (published in the July issue of the journal Research in Sports Medicine) shows that men are twice as likely to fake a soccer injury during a game than woman are. But here’s the most interesting part–especially for those of us who loath the knee-grabbers–about the study: After watching videos of 47 matches, a total of 270 apparent injuries were observed, a rate of 5.74 per game, compared to a “definite” injury rate was only 0.78 per match. So, there are about five “fake” injuries per game for every one real one.

Below is a video of some of the worst soccer “dives” ever caught on tape.
