Goalies Just Wanna Have Fun

Meet Lassi Hurskainen. He’s a Finnish goalie playing in the Big South conference.

In addition to backstopping the Bulldogs of UNC Asheville, Lassi also likes to make trick shot videos that include hitting targets from a distance and–my favorite–jumping over the hood of a car to make a diving save.

Lassi apparently won’t be happy until he’s conquered every corner of the internets, because he’s also enlisting his teammates (fellow GK Dan Jackson and forward Paul Egle) for a real life version of Angry Birds as well.

Videos like this might make you think that soccer goalies can do just about anything but dance…Oh, wait.
