This video comes to us from a middle school indoor lacrosse game in suburban Philadelphia, where one brave (and naive) young player thought it’d be a good idea to be like Patrick Kane and put some pazazz on his free play. As he trotted toward the net, he flipped the ball to himself twice. But the goalie wasn’t going to take any of that and rushed up to absolutely demolish him mid-second-flip, which, judging by the lack of appalled reactions from the adults, is perfectly legal.
The goalie, padded like he was about to defuse a bomb in “The Hurt Locker,” gave a”Yeah, son!” taunt to his now sprawled-out, seemingly dead nemesis before striking a “King of the World” pose as he got dap from his teammates. This has a happy ending, though. As the shooter headed back to his bench, both players shared a respectful glove pound. This, spoiled millionaire professional athletes, is called sportsmanship.
