Why Americans Don't Like Soccer: Man Punches Self With Opponent's Fist

Honestly, I don't even know how to explain this. Since I don't speak Spanish, I'm going to paraphrase: In the video below, the yellow team is throwing the ball back into play. 

In an impressive display of self-destructiveness, the defender in red grabs his opponent's arm and punches himself in the face with it, earning his team the change of possession.

And you wonder why Americans don't like soccer? It's quite hilarious though. Happy Saturday.

Of course, it's unfair to just limit ridicule of this type of behavior to soccer. Well flopped, Mr. Bosh!
