Where Does This Viral Women’s Soccer Fail Rank On The All-Time List Of Egregious Sports Fails?


Welcome to Fail City, my friends.

I recently came across a viral soccer video courtesy of the ladies of Maidstone United. If you’ve never heard of that team, there’s a reason for it, and it’s probably because they’re hot garbage.

If you don’t believe me, get a load of this mind-bendingly incapable soccer sequence.

Holy hell.

Don’t worry, ladies. You are far from the only ones to fall short of expectations. Check out some of the most head-scratching sports fails I’ve come across during my long tenure working on the interwebs.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
