If there’s ever a right way to get a red card, this is it.
An Italian soccer player was sent off during a game between amateur clubs Pontilcelli and Riolo Terme.
One team’s No. 9 pounced on a goalkeeper error and tapped his shot in for the easiest of goals. The excited scorer made a bee-line for the dugout and embarked on one of the greatest goal celebrations this observer has ever seen.
The No. 9 headbutted his entire body through the (plexi)glass pane.
Everybody seemed to love it … except for the referee, who sent off the exuberant goal scorer. Referees gonna ref, apparently.
While we don’t condone red cards or random acts of property damage, we just can’t find anything to dislike about this irrational goal celebration — even after watching it about a dozen times.
