2 Incredible Moments

It has been a great week in the world of soccer, with Barcelona destroying Madrid, AC Milan continuing their good form, and many title races still up in the air.

Here are two stories that you may have missed this week:

25 year old Dan Magness set a new world record for longest time controlling a football. Magness juggled the ball for exactly 24 hours, surpassing the previous record of 19 hours and 30 minutes. He juggled the ball an estimated 250,000 times during his attempt.

My personal record is about 24 times nevermind 24 hours. Well done Dan.



Also, in the Greek Cup Final, AEK and Olympiacos played to a 3-3 tie in regulation, a 4-4 tie after extra time, and Olympiacos pulled out the victory 15-14 in the penalty shootout...

When is the last time you watched a game where the ball went into the back of the net over 30 times? 

Even Americans would have liked this one....

I want to buy that man a beer. That is seriously impressive. Clearly he is not a man afflicted by worldly needs such as eating, sleeping, and going to the bathroom. Either that or he's an amazing multi-tasker.

Matilda I agree...

I would probably fall asleep if I was awake for 24 hours, never mind juggle a ball...
