Bully Pulpit

Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Soccer Player Punches Self In Face In Attempt To Draw Foul

(By Dan Fogarty, SportsGrid) - In possibly the floppiest flop you will ever floppin’ see, Bryan Carrasco, a 19-year old Chilean right back, grabbed an opposing player’s arm and hit himself in the face with it in an attempt to draw a foul. Luckily, Carrasco was caught in the act by the referee, and found 'himself' being called for the foul.

The moment will live on in infamy thanks to Spanish-language program “Gol Zap.” Panelists on the show had a good laugh at Carrasco’s expense, and hopefully the extremely public, extremely viral embarrassment he’s now suffering through is enough to keep him from doing this again.
