Riquelme Faceplants, Pretends Nothing Happened

Even the greatest have their low moments. Juan Roman Riquelme, Argentine footballer and Boca Juniors legend, is no exception. During practice, the Boca midfielder stepped on a ball and fell flat on his face. What happened next was just plain brilliant.

The video reminded me of this kid in high school who played in the varsity basketball team with me. Well, played is a loose term. He only went when our team was up by  more than fifteen points and late in the fourth quarter. Once, the couch told him to go in. He raced to the scorer’s table, slipped on some water, and pulled off a Riquelme. Highlight of his high school basketball career.
