In always try hard and believe in yourself news, this is a video of 9-year old soccer player Aleks repeatedly trying to kick the ball through a tire hanging in the top of the goal. He always comes close, but never gets it in there. I mean, until he does.

This is a short video of a pitcher throwing a clever sleight-of-hand pitch for a strike. That’s cool, but you still need two more for an out, and I think the jig is up with this pitch. I’d mix it up with maybe something behind the back or between the
