Even amateurs have weird goal celebrations in soccer

- February 11th, 2014

Watch soccer for long enough and you’re bound to see some of the most bizarre goal celebrations.

Even at the grassroots level.

Take, as Exhibit 1, the following YouTube video, which shows a young amateur player going waaaaaayyy over the top after scoring a chintzy goal during an Italian match between Ponticelli and Riolo Terme.

The guy thinks he’s the Incredible Hulk. Or, at the very least, Hulk.

In honour of the incredibly silly celly, we’re going to name it after our gritty, hard-working, tough-as-nails but offensively deficient senior sports editor, Kurt Larson, who to his credit parlayed a love for Hilary Duff and Chris Brown into a soccer scholarship at Drake University.

Henceforth, celebrating a goal by putting your head through the dugout will be called “The Larsadino.”

It’s not to be confused with this, uh, odd celebration.
