Everyone knows that soccer players have a tendency to well, fall a lot. Often times players will flail on the ground as if they were suffering a seizure despite not being touched by anyone. However, after the proper amount of time has been wasted and the “magic spray” applied, these players “magically” fully heal from their life threatening injury.

I will never forget watching Ghana play the US in the last World Cup and yelling at my TV every time a player from Ghana needed a stretcher to get off the field, yet was able to walk perfectly fine once they made it to the side line. I do enjoy watching soccer, but the flopping gets to be a bit ridiculous.

Earlier this year in match between the Los Angeles Galaxy and San Jose Earthquakes, David Beckham kicked the ball at a San Jose defender that felt it was an appropriate time to go down, up one with not a lot of time left. At first I thought this was an immature move my Beckham, but then the defender popped up and ran toward Beckham to confront him for the cheap shot. It showed the world that the defender was not actually injured at all, but rather trying to find a cheap way to sneak out a victory.

That brings us to this week’s Video of the Week, which features the best soccer flops of all-time. Enjoy, as many of these actors may be winning an Academy Award for their impressive performances.

Why Being Jewish Doesn’t Mean I Must Support Everything Israel Does

One of the gifted items my congregation presented to me following my Bat Mitzvah was Alfred J Kolatch’s “The Jewish Book of Why.” This was an unsurprising gift, as an integral part of the Jewish religion is the pursuit of knowledge and, in doing so, questioning everything. With the ongoing conflict between Israel and Gaza, […]

This Ice Bucket Challenge Fail Is So Bad It Might Have Just Ended The Campaign

The Ice Bucket Challenge has captured the attention of the entire world over the past couple of weeks. Even though there are probably one or two Tibetan monks who haven’t been nominated yet, it’s safe(ish) to say that the trend has run its course. I’ve gone to great lengths to document the variety of ways people […]

The Hamptons Are Running Out Of Rosé, And Social Climbers Are Panicking

Both socialites and social climbers will be extremely upset to find out their drink of choice, rosé, is running at dangerously low levels in the Hamptons. Apparently, the basics have been running rampant, draining restaurants and wine shops of their Wölffer Estate, Domaines Ott and Chateau d’Esclans’ Whispering Angel. Montauk’s Surf Lodge, Navy Beach and Moby’s in […]
