No, not Mancow the shock jock. A guy dressed as a cow who apparently wants to be the new mascot for the professional soccer team in Kansas City. Not sure that the security guards needed to tackle him at the end, but it was a nice touch and sends a message to all other man-cows who want to graze on the field in the future.
Not sure where this video takes places (some vague South American country, we think) but the player being interviewed must know the guy who kicks him in the head during a live interview because it’s not followed by any gun play or fan riots. (UPDATE: The incident happened after the Italian Serie A league match between Roma and Milan. Adriano Cassano is being interviewed by Rai and Zlatan Ibrahimovic taps, with his foot, Cassano in the back of his head. Both play for Milan.)
Interestingly though, the guy getting hit does not fall down to the ground grabbing his face as if he had been shot with a high powered rifle. Maybe he just feels stronger after a long, hard soccer game and can withstand that kind of contact rather than during a game when he’s rested?
Those wacky soccer players! (The kick is hard to see until the very last slow motion replay at the end.)
It started like most of these things do: in the middle of a match, a soccer player pushes an opponent a little bit going for the ball, and that guy falls to the ground as if he was hit over the head with a baseball bat and everyone jumps in as if they’ve NEVER seen this happen in a soccer game. Pushing in soccer? How dare he! Can’t you see my friend has been injured beyond repair?
Tempers flair, people start pushing each other, and then before you know it some guy named Armand comes flying in from the sidelines (enter screen right) to deliver a flying kick to the upper back of one of his opponents.
Result: Armand is banned FOR LIFE from the soccer league in whatever country he currently lives in. For life . . . or longer, maybe, the officials in this league are petty pissed off. It’s possible that Armand’s grandchildren will still be unable to play organized soccer thirty years from now.
Watch and learn.
