Ivory Coast Keeper Boubacar Barry Celebrates Goal By Eating Grass (GIF)

Ivory Coast goalkeeper Boubacar Barry and Les Miles probably never thought their names would be uttered in the same sentence.

But apparently Barry, like the LSU head coach, likes to eat grass.

After Wilfried Bony scored to get Ivory Coast even with Greece on Tuesday at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Barry celebrated by shoving a handful of grass in his mouth and chewing.

Barry must have forgotten to eat a pre-game meal.

The grass didn’t prove helpful for the Ivorian keeper, though. Giorgos Samaras beat him on a penalty kick in the 93rd minute¬†as Greece won 2-1 and eliminated Ivory Coast from the World Cup.

Maybe next time he’ll settle for a power bar.
