You know that perfect play. The three-point shot right at the buzzer. The grand slam or the touchdown in the last minute to win the game.
Or perhaps, it's a bicycle kick with only twelve minutes left and the game is tied.
For those of you that don't follow the worldwide sport of soccer, I'm sure you're looking at this going "bicycle what?" But it's an extreme soccer move that requires a lot of talent to even try, let alone execute perfectly.
And perfect was exactly what Wayne Rooney's kick was during the Manchester United game on Saturday against their crosstown rival, Manchester City.
Needless to say, I'd like to see your favorite sports player try that!
For those who are curious about soccer but don't know much outside that fuss about the World Cup last year, we've got some lovely videos on the greats and some books on the subject for you to look into.
Trust me, soccer's not just a sport for soccer moms and their kids. It's a long standing world sport and it's that way for a reason.
