It seemed to be missing the goal until the last second when it took a seemingly impossible swerve at the last second. There's been debates for years about whether it was a fluke, but it's still often regarded as (one of) the greatest free-kicks ever taken.

The video of the seemingly impossible kick is here. (turn volume down)

Original ad:
litter of 6 kittens up for adoption! they are all 3 weeks old and are looking for a good home. contact if interested.
From Mike Hunt to *********@***********.org


I am interested in taking all six kittens off of your hands. How much do you want for them?


From Shannon ******* to Me


Are you going to take care of all of these kittens? I want to make sure they all find a good home, and was expecting to sell them one at a time. Are you able to house all six of them?

From Mike Hunt to Shannon *******


To be honest, I own a pet Bengal Tiger and he is on a strict diet of cats. I usually feed him one cat every couple of days, so this litter should hold him over for a while. Don't worry though, I'll take good care of the kittens until I feed them to him.


From Shannon ******* to Me

That is horrible! You will not get a single kitten from me. I really hope you are not serious.

From Mike Hunt to Shannon *******


I was kidding. I seriously need all six kittens though. Disregard anything I said about a tiger.

Best Ad Banner You Will Ever See

Normally, I'm not one for internet ads. In fact, it just so happens I use ADP for Firefox so I don't have to see popups for dating websites or something equally as worthless. However, if there were ever to be an award for cleverest ad then I would tip my hat off to this one right here. Possibly the only ad banner I can keep clicking without some ulterior motive. One of the few examples of brilliant marketing.
