You know, usually we're of the mind that soccer players are pussies who claim to run for like 80 minutes but really stand around for like 15 of those minutes just watching some tool kick the ball back and forth with another tool. Then we watched APOEL's Paulo Jorge take a teammates melon to the mouth. The result: teeth just flying around the pitch. Jorge's team got drilled, too. JUMP!
