Once in a century goal!

While much of the nation will be talking about the Pittsburgh Pirates, baseball, and the 4th worst loss ever (20 - 0, the worst game for the team in 124 years), there are other things to celebrate in sports.

Given I'm not a big baseball fan. Still I did notice the score. And the stats are horrendous.

  • The aggregate score of the three-game series was Brewers 36, Pirates 1
  • Ten Brewers recorded an RBI on Thursday. Pitcher Manny Parra(notes) ended the scoring with a RBI single in the ninth inning.

    But I'm lucky. When I do pay attention to baseball I am a Yankees fan. Who grows up in the Bronx and isn't?

    So for the fans of the Pirates, those that love world records, and fans of soccer (futbol) that are waiting for the World Cup, I present the first - and likely only ever - tandem bicycle kick goal.

    Pele may be the immortal image of a bicycle kick goal, but this is something you just have to watch more than once. I can't even imagine the odds of this. Forget about seeing it happen again.

    This is why Argentina is feared in the World Cup. They were the first team to play in the final World Cup round (with Uraguay, who won in 1930). They are the 4th most likely to win the World Cup based on the odds. They stand ranked 8th in the world right now. They have placed in the quarter-finals or better 7 times in the World Cup.

    So am I surprised that Argentian scored this once in a century goal? Not really. The real question is if this kind of amazing will to win is what will be on display in South Africa in the 2010 World Cup. I can't wait to find out.
