I was delegated this assignment from on-high by the Gods of Bleacher Report and initially I thought it was a bit of a silly article to write. Back-heeled goals? Who Cares?
But then I had the now customary change of heart. Football is about entertainment. It is a game we watch to marvel at the skill and precision of fantastic professional athletes. There is no shame in this.
Not all football commentary has to be serious. Not all of it has to be about signings, formations, back-room politics and financial planning. There is still a market for the childish glee of watching the sport and getting lost in the sheer beauty of this glorious game.
And with that in mind, here is a trivial and non-consequential but (hopefully) highly entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable list on back-heeled goals. Enjoy it for what it is ladies and gentlemen, and remember there is no shame in it...because at the end of the day, isn't enjoyment the whole point of the game?
