Monday Video (Lionel Richie: The Goalie)

Grammy-award winner Lionel Richie is certainly an extremely accomplished musician. However, did you know that he was also an amazing soccer goalie who may have inspired Tim Howard of the U.S. national team and Everton to take up the position* based on his play in the Commodores video for Lady (You Bring Me Up)?

A few notes about this incredible video.

- Since this could be a sanctioned soccer game with a referee, I’m shocked that no one seems to be wearing shin guards.

- Why does the referee use the safe sign so much? This isn’t baseball.

- At the 2:45 mark, throwing a ball into the goal is not a goal. The referee should be terminated for allowing this to happen.

* Richie inspiring Howard to be a goalie is probably not true, but can you dispute this claim?
