Only a Cat Can Make a Soccer Game Exciting: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A one-sided game between the Premier League side Everton and the lower-tier squad Dagenham & Redbridge got a boost of excitement on Saturday thanks to a curious cat."


Washington Post

Soccer is as exciting and thrilling as watching grass grow; I`d rather trim Oprah`s toenails than watch a soccer game on TV. The only time I watch soccer is when America`s women`s team competes in the World Cup, and truth be told it`s the athletes` curves that capture my attention, certainly not what passes for action on the field.

Not even a diehard soccer fan would find a game between Everton and Dagenham & Redbridge exciting; fortunately a cat kicked the excitement level up several notches by running onto the field.

As it turns out cats have a penchant for disrupting soccer games, check out the video at the bottom of this page depicting a cat creating chaos at a soccer game in Spain.
