The Greatest Ball Boy in the World

One of my sterling memories from attending a River Plate match at Buenos Aires’ aptly named El Monumental: the crusty old lifer fans in my section, so hardboiled that they heckled the ball boys if they screwed up. (“Moronico!”) Well, perhaps I should defer to those elderly Argentines’ knowledge of the game. As this incredibly slick play perpetrated by FC St. Pauli, Hamburg’s awesome punk-rock club, proves, smart Balljunge can make a difference in the league table. Start watching at about 2:30, and watch carefully:

All praise to The Offside’s St. Pauli blog, which directed me to this new frontier in competitive excellence.
